The university reserves the right to make, at any time, whatever changes it deems necessary in admission 
requirements, fees, charges, tuition, faculty, instructors, policies, regulations, and acadew.ic programs prior to 
the start of any class, term, semester, trimester, or session. The university reserves the right to divide, cancel, 
or reschedule classes or programs if enrollment or other factors so require. All such changes are effective at such 
times as the proper authorities determine and may apply not only to prospective students but also to those who 
are already enrolled in the university. 



Dear Student: 



At the University of New Haven, we provide world-class career preparation in all of our programs, 
but our overarching goal is to prepare students to lead meaningful lives. Through our courses in the 
arts, humanities, and sciences, we cultivate our students' humanity; and, by integrating real-life learn- 
ing in our academic programs — through such areas of emphasis as community service, internships, 
student-faculty research, and student self-governance — we prepare our students for leadership in 
their careers and as members of a democratic society. 

The technological and economic complexity as well as the great cultural diversity of the world in 
which you will live and work will require you to be exceptionally flexible, compassionate, and toler- 
ant human beings. I hope your UNH education will lead you to measure your personal success not 
just by the dollars you earn but primarily by the positive impact you can have on the lives of others. 
For this reason, I encourage you — regardless of your major — to explore this catalog for courses that 
will enrich your sense of social justice and societal responsibility. 

The faculty at UNH has impressive academic and professional credentials, in many cases bringing 
with them national and even international reputations in their fields. More important to you as a 
student, they are committed in unrivaled ways to the success of each and every one of their students. 
I hope you will take advantage of their interest in you and get to know as many faculty members as 
possible and allow them the privilege of knowing you. 

One of my favorite quotations, and one that I use often in speaking to students, is from Ernest 
Boyer, a former president of the Carnegie Foundation, who once warned that the "crisis of our time 

relates not to technical competence, but to a loss of the social and historical 

perspective, to the disastrous divorce of competence from conscience." As 

you focus in your studies on your technical training in whatever field 

you choose to study, 1 hope you will also allow yourself some time to 

take courses and participate in extracurricular activities that challenge 

you to question your own values as well as prevailing societal values and 

to look for ways to improve the world that you will help form as a 

member of a global society. 

1 wish you success in your studies and personal enrichment 
through your experiences at the University of New Haven. Please 
come to see me if there is ever anything I can do to assist you. 

With best wishes, 





Steven H. Kaplan 
President

The University 9 



• Community, business, and professional 
partnerships 

• Ideal size and presence 

• Student satisfaction 

The hallmarks of a UNH education are quality 
educational opportunities at all post-secondary levels, 
through career-oriented academic programs w^ith a 
strong liberal arts foundation, taught by a caring and 
highly qualified faculty in safe, convenient, and diverse 
campus environments. 

A solid core curriculum of liberal, humanistic 
coursework is balanced with professional programs in 
business, engineering, applied computer sciences, pub- 
lic safety, and other advanced technical areas. 

Moreover, the university is flexible enough to meet 
the needs of students w^ho work while they attend 
UNH. A range of programs for part-time study is 
offered at night. A cooperative education program 
makes it possible for students to augment their aca- 
demic program with related work experience. 

The Graduate School offers students the opportu- 
nity to continue study beyond the bachelor's degree on 
a part-time or full-time basis. 

By responding to the educational needs of its stu- 
dents, the University of New Haven has become a 
major regional university serving both our students 
and the business community. 

Accreditation 

The University of New Haven is a comprehensive, 
nonsectarian, independent institution of higher learn- 
ing chartered by the General Assembly of the State of 
Connecticut. 

The University of New Haven is accredited by the 
New England Association of Schools and Colleges 
(NEASC), Inc., a nongovernmental, nationally recog- 
nized organization whose affiliations range from ele- 
mentary schools to collegiate institutions offering 
postgraduate instruction. 

Accreditation by NEASC indicates that an insti- 
tution meets or exceeds criteria for the assessment of 
institutional quality periodically applied through a 
peer group review process. An accredited school or 
college is one which has available the necessary 



resources to achieve its stated mission through 
appropriate educational programs, is substantially 
doing so, and gives reasonable evidence that it will 
continue to do so in the foreseeable future. 
Institutional integrity is also addressed through 
accreditation. 

Accreditation by NEASC is not partial but applies 
to the institution as a whole. It is not a guarantee of 
the quality of every course or program offered or of the 
competence of individual graduates. Rather, it pro- 
vides reasonable assurance of the quality of opportuni- 
ties available to students. 

The UNH School of Business is actively seeking 
accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate 
Schools of Business (AACSB). The School has volun- 
tarily committed to participate in a systematic pro- 
gram of quality enhancement and continuous 
improvement that makes AACSB accreditation a more 
realistic and operational objective. 

The University of New Haven's curricula leading to 
the bachelor's degrees in chemical, civil, electrical, indus- 
trial, and mechanical engineering are fijlly accredited by 
the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the 
Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology 
(EAC/ABET). The computer science bachelor's degree 
program is fully accredited by the Computing 
Accreditation Commission of ABET (CAC/ABET). 

Individual programs, departments, and schools 
hold various forms of national professional accredita- 
tion which are listed in relevant sections of the catalog. 

History 

The University of New Haven was founded in 1 920 
as the New Haven YMCA Junior College, a division of 
Northeastern University. It became New Haven College 
in 1926 by an act of the Connecticut General Assembly. 
For nearly forty years, the college held classes in space 
rented from Yale University. 

In September 1958, the college completed con- 
struction of a classroom building on Cold Spring 
Street, New Haven, for its daytime engineering pro- 
grams. That same year, the college received authoriza- 
tion from the Connecticut legislature to offer the 
bachelor of science degree in the fields of business, 
accounting, management, and industrial engineering. 



10 



Although the student body on the new Cold 
Spring Street campus numbered fewer than 200, the 
college's facilities were fast becoming overcrowded. 
To meet the needs of the college and the local com- 
munity, the Board of Governors purchased, in I960, 
three buildings and twenty-five acres of land in West 
Haven formerly belonging to the New Haven 
County Orphanage. 

The combination of increased classroom space and 
four-year degree programs sparked a period of tremen- 
dous growth in enrollment and facilities. In 1961, the 
year after the college moved to West Haven, the gradu- 
ating class numbered seventy-five. Forty-five years later 
the figure has climbed to 1 ,200 graduates annually. 

New Haven College received full accreditation for 
its baccalaureate programs from the New England 
Association of Schools and Colleges in 1966. In 1969, 
the college took a major step forward with the addi- 
tion of the Graduate School. Initially offering pro- 
grams in business administration and industrial 
engineering, the Graduate School expanded rapidly. 
Today, twenty-eight masters programs, along with a 
wide variety of graduate certificates, offer the approx- 
imately 1,800 graduate students many choices for 
post-baccalaureate study. 

In 1970, on the fiftieth anniversary of its found- 
ing. New Haven College became the University of 
New Haven, reflecting the increased scope and the 
diversity of academic programs offered. Today, the 
university offers a rich variety of undergraduate and 
graduate degree programs in five schools: the College of 
Arts and Sciences, the School of Business, the Tagliatela 
School of Engineering, the Henry Lee College of 
Public Safety, and the Graduate School. 

Undergraduate and graduate courses and programs 
are offered on the main campus in West Haven and at 
other off-campus and in-plant sites. Graduate courses 
in selected fields are offered at our Southeastern cam- 
pus in New London and in Waterbury, Shelton, 
Stamford, and Newington. The graduate forensic sci- 
ence and fire science programs are also offered at satel- 
lite locations in California. The graduate program in 
national security and public safety is also offered at 
satellite locations in California, New Mexico, and 
Virginia. 



Philosophy 

The University of New Haven, a private, compre- 
hensive, multi-campus university based in southern 
New England, provides quality educational opportu- 
nities and preparation for self-reliant, productive, eth- 
ical service in a global society. 

Since its founding in 1920, the University of New 
Haven has been an innovator in providing quality edu- 
cational opportunities with special emphasis on pro- 
grams addressing current and emerging social needs. 

Building on its successful past, the university will 
strive to achieve prominent and distinctive leadership 
as an institution that empowers students with substan- 
tive knowledge, the ability to communicate, problem 
solving skills, and the practical experience appropriate 
for success as leaders in their professions and as citizens 
of the local and world communities. 

The university is committed to participatory gover- 
nance and quality management through continuous 
improvement as the means to achieve its goals and per- 
form its primary service — successfiil student and faculty 
growth and learning.

Associate's Degrees 

Associate's degree programs are designed to encour- 
age students to begin their college education even 
though they do not yet want to commit themselves to 
a full, four-year course of study. A minimum of sixty 
credit hours is required for the associate's degree, and 
the credits earned usually apply toward relevant bach- 
elor's degree programs. 

Certificates 

Students can take their first step toward an 
undergraduate degree by registering for one of the 
certificates offered by the university. 

Each certificate is carefully designed as a concen- 
trated introduction to a particular subject area and 
consists of courses totaling twelve or more credit 
hours. 

Later, students may choose to apply the credits 
they have earned toward a relevant undergraduate 
degree at the university.

University Policies 

Diversity Policy 

The University of New Haven is committed to 
achieving a diverse and pluralistic community which 
reflects the multiracial and culturally diverse society of 
contemporary America. 

The Diversity Committee has been established to 
guide the university in implementing this diversity pol- 
icy. The university will work toward attracting and 
retaining a diverse faculty, staff, and student body for 
the purpose of creating a pluralistic scholarly commu- 
nity. The committee will assist the administration in 
the development and implementation of programs and 
policies that support an enriched educational experi- 
ence for a diverse university community. 

The University of New Haven does not discrimi- 
nate in admissions, educational programs, or employ- 
ment against any individual on the basis of that 
individual's gender, race, color, religion, age, disability, 
sexual orientation, or national or ethnic origin. 

Notification of the Family Educational 
Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) 

The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act 
affords students certain rights with respect to their 
education records, as follows: 



(1) The right to inspect and review records within 
45 days of the day the university receives a request for 
access. Students should submit to the registrar, dean, 
head of academic department, or other appropriate offi- 
cial written requests that identify the record(s) they wish 
to inspect. The university official will make arrange- 
ments for access and notify the student of the time and 
place where the records may be inspected. If the records 
are not maintained by the university official to whom the 
request was submitted, that official shall advise the stu- 
dent of the correct official to whom the request should 
be addressed. 

(2) The right to request amendment of records that 
the student believes are inaccurate or misleading. 
Students may ask the university to amend a record that 
they believe is inaccurate or misleading. They should 
write the university official responsible for the record, 
clearly identify the part of the record they want 
changed, and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading. 
If the university decides not to amend the record as re- 
quested by the student, the university will notify the 
student of the decision and advise the student of his or 
her right to a hearing regarding the request for amend- 
ment. Additional information regarding hearing proce- 
dures will be provided to the student when notified of 
the right to a hearing. 

(3) The right to consent to disclosures of per- 
sonally identifiable information contained in the 
student's education records, except to the extent 
that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. 

One exception which permits disclosure without 
consent is a disclosure to school officials with legiti- 
mate educational interests. A school official is a per- 
son employed by the university in an administrative, 
supervisory, academic or research, or support staff 
position (including law enforcement unit personnel 
and health staff); a person or company with whom 
the university has contracted (such as an attorney, 
auditor, or collection agent); a person serving on the 
Board of Governors; or a student serving on an offi- 
cial committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance 
committee, or assisting another school official in per- 
forming his or her tasks. A school official has a legit- 
imate educational interest if the official needs to 
review an education record in order to fulfill his or 
her professional responsibility. 



14 



(4) The right to file a complaint with the U.S. De- 
partment of Education concerning alleged failures by 
the University of New Haven to comply with the 
requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the 
office that administers FERPA are Family Policy 
Compliance Office, U.S. Department of Education, 
600 Independence Avenue SW, Washington, DC 
20202-4605. 

The Student Right-to-Know and 
Campus Security Act 

In accordance with Connecticut's Public Act 90- 
259 concerning campus safety and the 1990 federal 
law, PLIO 1-542: The Student Right-to-Know and 
Campus Security Act, all colleges and universities 
receiving state and federal financial assistance are 
required to maintain specific information related to 
campus crime statistics and security measures, annu- 
ally provide such information to all current students 
and employees, and make the data available to all 
prospective students and their families and to prospec- 
tive employees upon request. 

Safety on the university campus is a natural source of 
concern for parents, students, and university employees. 
Education - the business of the University of New 
Haven - can take place only in an environment in 
which each student and employee feels safe and secure. 
UNH recognizes this and employs a number of securirj^ 
measures including its own sworn police department to 
protect the members of this community. 

The Student Right-to-Know and Campus Securit)^ 
Act (Clery Act) is a federal law that requires all colleges 
and universities to disclose annually information 
about crime on and around their campuses. The 
Campus Crime Report includes statistics for the three 
most recently completed calendar years. 

The full report for the University of New Haven, 
prepared by the UNH Police Department, is available 
on the UNH website and in printed form at the UNH 
Police Department. This report also includes informa- 
tion on university policies concerning sexual assaults, 
alcohol, drugs, weapons, and residence hall security. 



Drug-Free and Smoke-Free 
Environment 

In accordance with federal law concerning a drug- 
free campus environment, the relevant university pol- 
icy and regulations are provided to all current students 
and employees. The information is also available upon 
request at the human resource department. 

The No Smoking policy is in effect in any campus 
administrative, academic, or recreational building. 
This restriction applies to all UNH offices, classrooms, 
hallways, stairwells, restrooms, dining facilities, con- 
ference/meeting facilities, athletic facilities, and any 
other public spaces within these buildings. Smoking is 
confined to outdoor space, with ashtrays provided at 
entrances to each building. 

Smoking in the residence halls is restricted to rooms, 
suites, and apartments which have been designated as 
allowing smoking as agreed upon by the roommates. 
Smoking is not allowed in lobbies, hallways, laundry 
rooms, meeting rooms, community rooms, or any other 
public spaces within the residence halls. 



University Curricula 1 5 



UNIVERSITY CURRICULA 



University Core Curriculum 

The University of New Haven's revised Core 
Curriculum strives to develop six basic competencies 
among all UNH undergraduate students so that they 
may better understand and get along with other peo- 
ple, succeed in their chosen careers, and pursue life- 
long learning after completing the requirements for 
the bachelor's degree. The revised core aims at gradu- 
ating students who are: 

Good thinkers, speakers, and writers. 

Skilled at analysis and problem solving, 

Skilled at using computer technology, and who are 

Effective citizens of their own country and the 
world. 

Aware of cultural similarities and differences, and 

Sensitive to artistic accomplishments. 

In consultation with a faculty advisor, the student 
will select at least 40 credit hours of core courses from 
among the following six categories. Individual inter- 
ests are to be encouraged as are also a breadth and 
depth of knowledge through traditional and contem- 
porary areas of study. 

Note well: 

1 . The advisor and student are cautioned to regard the 
prerequisites for some courses and plan core 
choices accordingly. 

2. A student may not use a single core course to sat- 
isfy more than one category of the core. 

3. An academic worksheet may prescribe or proscribe 
certain choices within core categories but, in gen- 
eral, must allow the advisor and student the widest 
choice possible. Program worksheets may not limit 
core course choices without the approval of the 
Core Curriculum Committee. 

4. Courses with prerequisites are followed by an asterisk.

Associate's Degree Core Requirements 

Students pursuing an associate's degree must satisfy the 
following core curriculum competencies: 

Communication (CCl) - 6 credits 

Analysis and Problem Solving (CC2) - 3 credits 

Using Technology (CC 3) - 3 credits 

Social Interaction and Global Perspective (CC 5) - 

3 credits 

A Sense of History and Effective Citizenship 

(CC 4) - 3 credits 

Aesthetic Responsiveness (CC 6) - 3 credits 

These competencies are explained in detail above. All 
core requirements satisfied by the student for the 
associate's degree will be applied toward the larger 
bachelor's degree core if the student continues study. 

Academic Advising 

To assist students in their academic development, 
the university assigns an academic advisor from the 
department of each student's chosen field of study. As 
soon and as often as possible, wise students seek the 
advice of their academic advisors regarding major 
requirements, career opportunities, choice of a minor, 
and progress in their major, as well as other areas of 
personal interest. At the time of registration, the aca- 
demic advisors assist in and approve course selection. 



18 



Students also confer with their advisors when adding 
or dropping courses, and advisors often make referrals 
to other qualified personnel on campus. The academic 
advisor is, therefore, the link between the student and 
the academic regulations of the university. 

The Honors Program 

The UNH Honors Program is designed for excep- 
tionally motivated students who have shown high levels 
of academic achievement. In order to enter the pro- 
gram, a student must have completed at least twenty- 
four credit hours with a cumtdative grade point average 
of at least 3.3 at the time the first honors course is 
undertaken. 

Applicants for the program are evaluated on the 
basis of high school performance, college performance, 
standardized test (SAT, ACT) scores, and recommen- 
dations of college teachers. 

The university requires every student, regardless of 
major, to take a number of core courses in nine general 
areas. The Honors Program offers students an intellec- 
tually exciting and challenging way to satisfy some of 
these core requirements. 

Students in the program take one honors seminar 
each semester for four semesters. Each seminar 
actively involves students in problem solving and 
inquiry. Topics in the seminars draw from several dis- 
ciplines and study linkages between disciplines. Each 
course satisfies one of the university core curriculum 
requirements. 

Honors Seminars offered recently have included: 

"Engineering and Society." Relationships between 
engineering and society are investigated by focusing on 
environmental concerns. 

"Contexts and Images: African-Americans in 
Literature and Film." This course provides an oppor- 
tunity to examine literature and film as integral ele- 
ments of African-American experience, heritage, and 
culture, from the Civil War to the present. 

"Arabic and Christian Influences on Western Culture 
in the Middle Ages." The Renaissance of the four- 
teenth century brought forth a new flowering of learn- 
ing in Europe in science, art, music, politics, and 
economics. This course investigates how forces outside 



of Europe, in particular the Arab world, had major 
influences on this rebirth of learning. 

"Psycholinguistics and Science Fiction." This course 
presents a psycholinguistics investigation of the impact 
of the influence of language on the perception of real- 
ity as exemplified in selected works of science fiction. 

"Classical Experiments in Science." In this course, 
classical science experiments are studied in their his- 
toric intellectual context and reproduced in the labo- 
ratory. This course is built around nine experiments, 
three in biology, three in chemistry, and three in 
physics. Students recreate the conditions that existed 
in the labs at the times of the experiments, conduct the 
experiments, and report their findings in the context 
of the understanding of the day. 

"The Ethics of Sport." This course examines some 
controversial issues in contemporary sport within the 
context of several major ethical frameworks. This 
course draws heavily on both philosophy and 
sociology. 

"Cultural Entrepreneurialism." In this course the rela- 
tionship between the cultural importance and inter- 
pretation of the artifacts of Connecticut and their 
potential as sites for tourism and economic develop- 
ment is explored. Historical, cultural, literary, and eco- 
nomic impact are assessed in relation to geography, 
population, education, cultural expectations, and 
funding and long-range planning resources. 

After completing the four honors seminars, stu- 
dents write an honors thesis in their major discipline 
under the guidance of a professor in the major depart- 
ment. Up to six credits may be awarded for this thesis. 
The results of the research are to be presented orally to 
members of the student's major department and to 
members of the Honors Committee. 

In order to remain in the program, students must 
maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 
3.3 throughout their studies at UNH. 

Advantages of the Honors Program 

In addition to a challenging and exciting curricu- 
lum, the Honors Program offers: 

Financial 7\id: A student who has successfully com- 
pleted the four seminar courses described above and 



University Curricula 19 



one additional semester of work on an honors thesis, 
all with a cumulative grade point average of 3.3 or 
higher, will be granted a 50% tuition reduction by 
UNH for the final semester in residence at UNH. In 
addition, students in the Honors Program with a 
cumulative grade point average of 3.5 or higher and 
who are either rising juniors or seniors are eligible to 
apply for one of six John Hatfield Scholar awards. 
These competitive awards are $1,000 per semester 
tuition scholarships, awarded to Honors Program stu- 
dents with high grade point averages who are active in 
student life and community service. In addition to 
the financial award, John Hatfield Scholar recipients 
receive special parking privileges, a bronze medallion, 
and a certificate of recognition. 

Small Classes: Honors program classes provide an 
opportunity for participation and discussion in a set- 
ting where students know their instructors and their 
fellow students especially well. 

Recognition: A student who successfully completes 
the honors program, including the honors thesis, 
will be designated as an Honors Scholar on the tran- 
script and will receive an Honors Scholar medallion 
awarded at graduation. Thus, prospective employ- 
ers, graduate schools, and other institutions will be 
aware of this extra accomplishment in the student's 
pursuit of the undergraduate degree. 

Developmental Studies Program 

The developmental studies program is designed to 
strengthen the basic skills of entering students. 
Courses within the program are taught by members of 
the faculty of the mathematics department and the 
English department. 

The English department offers two developmental 
courses: El 02 Academic Reading and Speaking and 
El 03 English Fundamentals. These courses offer stu- 
dents a comprehensive study of the basic reading, 
speaking, and writing skills necessary in using the 
English language effectively. Ml 03 Fundamental 
Mathematics is taught by the mathematics department. 

Placement in these courses is determined by exam- 
inations given by the respective departments. Such 



placement becomes a first priority for affected stu- 
dents because the university believes that such stu- 
dents can become successful college students only 
upon correction of skill deficiencies. 

Please note that although E 102, E 103, and M 
103 each carry three college credits, these cannot be 
applied toward students' degree programs. E 103 and 
M 103 usually meet for up to six hours per week to 
provide intensive help. 

Complete descriptions of the developmental 
courses appear in this catalog as part of the course of- 
ferings of the mathematics department and the 
English department. 

Freshman Experience Seminar 

In their first year, college students face a number of 
new challenges. The Freshman Experience Seminar at 
UNH is designed to help students make the transition 
from high school to college. 

This program incorporates the talents of more 
than thirty university personnel, both faculty and 
staff, and reflects the University of New Haven's com- 
mitment to high-quality student advising. 

During their first semester, all new freshmen are 
required to take the ten-week team-taught FE 001 
Freshman Experience Seminar, which addresses such 
topics as academic standards, diversity, time and 
stress management, college life versus high school life, 
university relationships, responsible human sexuality, 
exploration of self, alcohol and substance abuse, and 
real-life learning. The goal of this seminar is to give 
students the tools to help them understand and suc- 
ceed in what can be, and increasingly is becoming, a 
very competitive environment. FE 001 is also a won- 
derful support system for students who are away from 
home for the first time. FE 001 is mandatory for all 
incoming first-time freshmen with no previous col- 
lege experience and is a requirement for graduation. 

A key component of the Freshman Seminar 
involves introducing the student to his or her academic 
advisor, who will serve as the link between the student 
and the academic regulations of the university.

The University Community 21 



THE UNIVERSITY 
COMMUNITY 



The University of New Haven provides an environ- 
ment designed to foster the personal grovnh of its stu- 
dents. Through its programs, services, and faciHties, it 
provides the opportunity for students to become 
involved in meaningful activities which can develop 
into lifelong interests. These activities include recre- 
ational, social, community outreach, professional, and, 
of course, academic pursuits. In addition, the campus 
provides most of the services needed to assure the com- 
fort and well-being of its students. 

Academic Support Services 

Academic services are provided to facilitate and 
enhance students' academic progress through the uni- 
versity by furnishing guided access to advisory sources 
and ancillary support systems. Many of the available 
services are described below. 

Office of Academic Services 

The Office of Academic Services, located in Maxcy 
Hall, provides a wide range of academic support to day 
and evening undergraduate students. 

Academic Skills Counselors work with students 
individually or in small groups to strengthen abilities 
or make referrals to other qualified personnel on cam- 
pus. They help students develop an individualized 
study strategy that focuses on textbook reading, lecture 
note-taking, time management, learning and memory 
strategies, and test-taking skills. 

The office provides monitoring services to enable 
counselors, mentors, and coaches to assess the students' 
progress in their courses. The office also coordinates the 
efforts of the mentors responsible for working with stu- 
dents who are enrolled in the developmental math and 
English courses. The office also provides advisors for the 
activities of both the day and evening Honor Societies. 
The office provides access to the Student Ombudsman, 



who can assist in the resolution of student complaints, 
perceived grievances, and/or concerns. 

Study Abroad 

This newly created program is designed to give jun- 
iors and seniors the opportunity to experience differ- 
ent cultures while earning credits towards their degree. 
The office will provide information and guidance to 
assist students with finding a study abroad program 
that meets their educational, social, and cultural inter- 
ests and objectives. For more information go to 
yyyyw. newhaven. edu/studyabroad/ . 

Center for Learning Resources 

The Center for Learning Resources (CLR) offers 
free tutoring to students seeking extra help with their 
studies. The tutoring staff, over twenty instructors in 
all, is comprised largely of professionals who hold 
advanced degrees in their fields and who are commit- 
ted to aiding the learning process. Tutoring is available 
six days a week throughout the semester. 

The CLR includes three labs: The Math Lab offers 
help with mathematics, science, and business courses; 
the Writing Lab offers help with all writing assign- 
ments. Both labs operate primarily on a drop-in basis, 
but the Writing Lab also offers appointments. The 
computer lab is equipped with the latest Microsoft 
software, math tutorials, and Internet access. 

Developmental Studies Program 

The developmental studies program is designed to 
strengthen the basic skills of entering students. Courses 
within the program are taught by members of the fac- 
ulty of the Mathematics department and the English 
department. (See the University Curricula section of 
this catalog for additional information.) 



22 



Freshman Experience Seminar 

The Freshman Experience Seminar at UNH is de- 
signed to smooth the transition of first-time students 
from high school into the substantially different envi- 
ronment of a university. (See the University Curricula 
section of this catalog for the course description for 
FE 001, the Freshman Experience Seminar.) 

Student Services 

The University of New^ Haven cares deeply about 
the well-being of its students. A variety of services are 
available on campus to meet needs ranging from career 
advising to health care. Every effort is made to accom- 
modate special student needs, such as helping interna- 
tional students to adjust to a new culture or ensuring 
that classes and facilities are readily accessible to stu- 
dents with disabilities. Many of the available services 
are described in the following pages. 

Campus Card Office/Parking Permits 

The UNH Campus Card offers many services and 
advantages for all members of the UNH campus com- 
munity. The Campus Card is a credit-card sized, color 
photo identification card. It is to be used as the official 
UNH library card and residential meal plan card, for 
security access identification, and for a number of 
other services. 

All new students are required to obtain a Campus 
Card in order to register for a parking permit. The 
Campus Card must be renewed by all returning stu- 
dents at the beginning of the Fall term every year. 
Campus Card photos are taken at Echlin Hall on the 
main campus. Campus Card Office hours are posted 
at the beginning of each term. 

Resident freshmen are not permitted to have vehicles 
on campus, or parked on city streets in the neighbor- 
hoods adjacent to campus. 

In the interest of maintaining good relations with 
our neighbors, it is important that resident students 
limit parking to the designated ON CAMPUS parking 
areas. Resident student parking on city streets in the 
neighborhoods adjacent to campus is prohibited by the 
university. Vehicles in violation are subject to university 



sanctions including, but not limited to, UNH parking 
tickets. 

The University of New Haven is not responsible for 
damage to, or theft from, personal vehicles parked on 
university property. 

New students may obtain a main campus parking 
sticker for their cars or motorcycles at the Campus 

Card Office or at the University Police Office located 
in the lower level of the Campus Bookstore. All cars 
. must display a UNH parking sticker; vehicles parked 
in violation may be ticketed or towed. Detailed infor- 
mation on parking regulations, violations, and report- 
ing of accidents is contained in the Student Handbook. 

University Police Office 

The staff of the University Police Office, located in 
the lower level of the Campus Bookstore, are certified 
police officers who undergo continuous training and 
who have been trained in emergency medical proce- 
dures, first aid, and CPR. They conduct regularly 
scheduled campus patrols and work closely with local, 
state, and federal agencies to enforce the laws of the 
State of Connecticut, especially those most pertinent 
to campus safety and security. The University Police 
Office is fully staffed 24 hours a day. 

Career Services Center 

The mission of the University of New Haven's 
Career Services Center is to contribute to the life long 
development and career advancement of students and 
alumni, and the continued development of a vibrant 
network of its alumni, students, faculty, and friends. 
The mission will be supported by its overarching goal 
of "EMPOWER "ing the university's vested con- 
stituencies through: Education, Motivation, Personal 
development. Opportunities, Wisdom, Employment, 
and Reporting. 

The Career Services Center provides services for stu- 
dents, alumni, faculty, and employers. These services 
include assisting with career planning and job search- 
ing, preparing and reviewing resumes, mentorship 
opportunities, and interviewing skills. Individual 
appointments may be scheduled by phone. The Career 
Services Center may also be contacted through e-mail - 



The University Community 23 



JOBS@newhaven.edu - or through our website, 
www. newhaven . edu/careerservices . To participate in 
the Career Development Days and the UNH Virtual 
Career Fairs, undergraduate students must visit the 
Career Services Center at least once each academic year, 
as well as have an electronic resume and Professional 
Code of Conduct contract on file with the CSC. 

Student Employment 

During each academic year, employer representa- 
tives visit the campus to interview graduating 
University of New Haven students. While the CSC is 
not an employment service and does not guarantee 
jobs, it does maintain extensive listings of both full- 
and part-time positions to provide a common meeting 
ground for employers and prospective employees. Stu- 
dents will fmd this useful in locating part-time and 
full-time jobs while in school and employment follow- 
ing graduation as well. Alumni seeking positions are 
also encouraged to use the services of the office. 

Employers wishing to list positions need only call 
or write, giving a description of the position available 
and other pertinent details. There is no placement fee 
charged for these services. 

Information 

The CSC publishes updates of recruiter visits in 
The Charger Bulletin as well as information regarding 
Career Development events, the employment outlook 
for graduates, and job search hints. Career Develop- 
ment information is also provided in Insight, the UNH 

alumni publication. 

Cooperative Education 

Cooperative Education (Co-op) is an academic 
support program that enables students to combine 
career-oriented, paid, full-time or part-time work 
experience with their college education. Co-op stu- 
dents benefit by being able to explore career interests 
firsthand, by gaining valuable work experience related 
to their majors, and by earning money to assist with 
their college expenses. 



How Co-op Works 

Students should inquire about Co-op when they 
begin their degree programs. Work assignments start 
later, usually at the end of the sophomore year. The 
keys to a successful Co-op experience are flexibility 
and preparation. Co-op coordinators advise and coun- 
sel students in each academic area, helping students to 
prepare resumes and develop interview skills. 

The flexibility of the UNH Co-op program gives 
students a chance to schedule plans of study and work 
which fit their needs. Undergraduate students attend 
classes for the first two years of college, and they pre- 
pare for work assignments which start at the end of the 
sophomore year. Juniors and seniors alternate classes 
with co-op work which may last four or six months. 
Transfer students typically complete one semester on 
campus and may then enter the co-op cycle, provided 
that they have completed their sophomore year. 
Individual cases vary, and students should review their 
needs with Co-op coordinators. 

The variety and number of co-op employers 
attest to their recognition that cooperative education 
is an effective way to identify and train future 
employees. Active co-op employers include: 
American Cyanamid, Black & Decker, Corometrics, 
Dow UT, Dictaphone, Pitney Bowes, Pratt & 
Whitney, Sikorsky, and Remington Products as well 
as state and federal agencies. Student assignments 
include computer programming, accounting, coun- 
seling, criminal investigation, and engineering. Stu- 
dents may live in university housing while doing 
work assignments in the greater New Haven area, or 
they may work with their Co-op coordinators to 
develop jobs closer to home. 

Interested students will meet with a Co-op coordi- 
nator to review eligibility requirements and the plan of 
study for their degree program. Co-op plans vary, 
which makes it important for students in the College 
of Arts and Sciences, the Schools of Business, 
Engineering, and Public Safety, to take advantage of 
the individual attention their Co-op coordinators will 
provide. Students should contact the Dean's office of 
their college/school to be directed to the appropriate 
Co-op coordinator.

The Counseling Center offers services designed 
to help students with problems that may interfere 
with their academic, social, or personal activities. 
The services provided include confidential personal, 
academic, and vocational counseling and testing, 
personality assessment, and educational assessment. 

Student Ombudsman 

The student ombudsman serves as a neutral party 
to whom students (and parents) can appeal for reso- 
lution of complaints, perceived grievances, or con- 
cerns. The student ombudsman mediates disputes 
and attempts to develop an equitable resolution 
between the involved parties. For more information,

recreational offerings of the campus and are available 
to students whenever questions or problems arise. The 
director assists the university's 504/ADA Compliance 
Officer with oversight of the university's compliance 
with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, 
the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and other 
government regulations. The director also handles stu- 
dent grievances, whether informal or formal, regarding 
allegations of discrimination based on disability. 

In order to receive accommodations and/or services, 
a student is responsible for self-identifying as a student 
with a disability, submitting appropriate documentation, 
making a specific request for reasonable accommoda- 
tions, and following established policies and procedures 

for arranging accommodations each semester/trimester. 

The Disability Services and Resources Office is 
located on the ground level in the rear of Sheffield 
Hall. The director can be reached at (203) 932-733 1 .

Health Services Center 

The University Health Services Center is open to all 
university students w^ithout charge. Lx)cated on the 
ground level in the rear of Sheffield Hall, the center is 
staffed with two registered nurses and part-time physi- 
cians. The Health Services Center provides initial care 
for minor illnesses and injuries, as well as diagnosis,

A part of the health program is a weekly women's 
clinic which takes place at the health center and covers 
gynecological problems, birth control, and sex-related 
issues. 

One requirement of the center is that all students 
entering the Full-Time Division provide documenta- 
tion of their medical and immunization history by 
completing the health form provided by the 
Undergraduate Admissions Office and returning it to 
the Health Services Center. All students who plan to 
live in residential housing must provide proof of hav- 
ing received a meningitis vaccine. These requirements 
are in compliance with the State of Connecticut 
Health Department's guidelines for immunization and 
disease control. 

International Services 

Each year the University of New Haven admits stu- 
dents from many nations. These students, represent- 
ing more than fifty different countries, bring an 
international dimension to the campus. 



The International Services Office provides for the 
special needs and concerns of all international stu- 
dents. The office staff assists students with U.S. 
Citizenship and Immigration Services regulations; 
provides information on travel to and from the United 
States; and advises students on academic, social, and 
cultural adjustment. The office also serves as a liaison 
between international students and the university 
community. 

A wide range of programs has been developed, 
including publication of an international newsletter, 
special orientation events, information seminars, and 
an international festival. For more information, call

Multicultural Affairs and Services 

The Office of Multicultural Affairs is responsible 
for the development, coordination, and support of 
educational, cultural, and social programs that build 
and foster awareness and appreciation of diversity 
throughout the university community. The office 
advises, supports, and provides leadership to under- 
represented student groups and multicultural student 
organizations on campus. 

Residential Life 

The character of residential living is often a good 
indication of the spirit and quality of life on campus. 
The goal of the university's residential life program 
is to provide a living/learning environment which 
promotes academic and personal growth and a sense 
of community among students. A student's on-cam- 
pus living experience is an integral part of the edu- 
cational process. 

Students live in nine residence halls: three for 
freshman and six for upperclassmen, supervised by 
Resident Directors responsible for the administra- 
tion of each hall. Resident Assistants (RAs) live on 
each floor and serve as peer advisors, role models, 
and initiators of activities and programs. 

University housing is occupied on an academic year 
basis, and it is recommended that all freshmen and 
sophomores live on campus unless they live with a par- 
ent or an extended-family member. All resident stu- 



26 



dents are required to purchase a university meal plan. 

The Office of Residential Life refers those wish- 
ing to look for off-campus housing to a web site 
which lists students looking for roommates, apart- 
ments, condos, and homes in the UNH area. 
Students are responsible for any contract undertaken 
for such housing and should consider carefully the 
nature of that contract and the responsibilities 
incurred. 

University Dining Services 

University Dining Services facilities on campus 
include the Marketplace Food Court and Jazzman's 
Cafe, which are located in Battels Hall Campus 
Center, the Quad Convenience Store, located in 
Botwinik Hall, and Pandini's and Sky Ranch Grill,

Students may select from meal plans which include 
declining balance and board options. Purchasing a 
meal plan is highly recommended for all students and 
is required for all resident students. Detailed informa- 
tion on meal plans is available at the Dining Services 
Office. 



Student Activities 



Being a student at the University of New Haven 
means having the best of two worlds: an active on- 
campus community and the city of New Haven. Stu- 
dents interested in cultural, intellectual, or social 
pursuit have a wealth of opportunities from which to 
choose. 

The Office of Student Activities, in conjunction 
with student clubs and organizations, provides a wide 
variety of events each week. With an increase in the 
quantity and quality of activities over past years, theme 
weekends such as Spring Weekend, Family Weekend, 
and Homecoming Weekend have been supplemented 
by an ongoing activities calendar of weekly events. 
There are plenty of opportunities to socialize and inter- 
act with fellow students, faculty, and staff — ^whether by 
enjoying a band, lecture, comedian, or magician; partic- 
ipating in volunteer opportunities; or taking a bus trip 
to a regional theater or recreation center. 



Students are also encouraged to develop their cul- 
tural and intellectual interests by participating in liter- 
ary, artistic, and dramatic events. Visiting artists, play 
and concert productions, invited lecturers, forums, and 
panel discussions are among the variety of programs 
available to students. UNH has more than eighty active 
student-run clubs and organizations. 

Athletics / Intramurals / Recreation 

Recognizing the importance of a broad range of phys- 
ical and emotional outlets to a well-balanced college 
experience, the University of New Haven seeks to 
involve the student in various levels of active partici- 
pation in games and sports, as well as to provide an 
opportunity for community and student support for 
its varsity intercollegiate program.

makes up one of the most respected and successful 
NCAA Division II programs in the country.

Intramural Programs 

At UNH, students are offered a wide variety of 
sports and activities to participate in through the

structured team and individual competitive part oi 
campus recreation. All intramural sports and activities 
are open to women and men. The majority of our 
offerings are co-recreational; women and men play on 
the same team. Becoming involved with the intramural 
department is an excellent way to make your college 
experience at UNH memorable. You do not have to be 
an athlete to reap the benefits of our program. 
Becoming involved offers you a way to meet new peo- 
ple, stay physically active, and most importantly, have 
fun. The following activities are currently offered for all

sponsor programs such as banquets, game shows, the 
semiannual blood drive, fundraisers to benefit chari- 
ties, and numerous hours of community service. 

Off-Campus Activities 

For those who want a change of pace from the col- 
lege scene, the university's proximity to the city of 
New Haven offers students many cultural opportuni- 
ties. Musical entertainment includes year-round per- 
formances by the New Haven Symphony Orchestra, 
live concerts at a variety of nearby venues, and local 
and national bands at many downtown clubs. 
Professional theater thrives in New Haven, home to 
three nationally recognized theaters, the Long Wharf 
Theatre, the Yale Repertory Company, and the 
Shubert. Some of the region's outstanding art collec- 
tions can be seen on the Yale University campus. 

On weekends the Connecticut shore, Cape Cod, 
the ski slopes of Vermont and New Hampshire, and 
New York City are just a car or train ride away. 

Publications 

Student publications include 77?^ Charger Bulletin, 
the student newspaper, and The Chariot, the annual 
yearbook. Students may volunteer their services to 
these student publications by contacting the USGA 
Office (see below). 

Student Government 

Separate undergraduate fijll, part-time, and graduate 
student councils have responsibility for initiating, organ- 
izing, and presenting extracurricular activities and acting 
as liaisons between students and university staff. 

The Undergraduate Student Government 
Association (USGA) is a forum where undergraduate 
full-time students provide input to the administration 



28 



to improve all aspects of undergraduate education at 
the university. Student-elected senators represent the 
voice of their constituencies at weekly USGA meetings. 

Students are strongly encouraged to get involved in 
leadership positions within the student government 
and other clubs and organizations. The university 
believes that leadership development is an integral part 
of all students' education. The USGA offices are 
located on the top floor of Battels Hall. 

The Evening Student Council is a board composed 
of students attending UNH evening classes. It has 
three primary objectives: (1) to promote the welfare of 
the evening student body, (2) to give counsel and 
encouragement to all evening students as well as to 
develop and encourage school spirit, and (3) to convey 
evening students' opinions to the administration and 
work with the administration in accomplishing stu- 
dent objectives. 

Membership in the Evening Student Council is 
open to all undergraduate evening students enrolled in 
courses for credit. The council meets regularly, and all 
evening students are invited to participate. In addition 
to the standard elected officers, student relations and 
public relations chairs assist the social committee in 
planning a variety of special events each year. 

WNHU Radio 

WNHU is the University of New Haven's non- 
commercial, FCC licensed FM radio station located in 
the basement of Maxcy Hall. Daily operations are 
maintained by a departmental general manager, stu- 
dent station managers, and a staff comprised of under- 
graduate students, community volunteers, and faculty 
members. WNHU's signal emanates from the main 
campus at a frequency of 88.7 at a power of 1,700 
watts and extends nearly thirty miles in every direc- 
tion, reaching practically all of southern Connecticut 
and even parts of eastern Long Island. WNHU's pro- 
gramming is also available as streaming audio online at 
www.wnhu.net . 

WNHU has recently undergone state-of-the-art 
renovations to its on-air and production studios, 
procuring professional-level broadcast equipment uti- 
lized by staff members to produce shows. While pro- 



duction of more than twenty hours of programming a 
day is a vital aspect of WNHU, it is not the only work 
to be done. Recording speeches on campus, providing 
music for on-campus events, and putting on shows in 
the community are examples of things WNHU does 
besides on-air functions, and the station plans to 
expand this area in the future. 

With positions available for news, productions, 
sports, and promotions, WNHU isn't just about being 
a DJ, and there is a spot for anyone interested in a vari- 
ety of concentrations. WNHU is open to any full-time 
or part-time undergraduate students, graduate stu- 
dents, faculty, staff, and community volunteers with 
an interest in radio and all its fijnctions. 

Campus Facilities 

The university's 78-acre campus contains twenty- 
seven buildings that offer students modern laboratory

Admission Procedure: 
International Students 

The university admits international students for 
both fall and spring semesters. Official academic tran-

university also accepts a minimum score of 5.5 on the 
International English Language Testing System 
(lELTS). 

Students who have been educated in English-speak- 
ing systems may substitute the SAT or ACT for the 
TOEFL. Depending on their academic background, 
students transferring from accredited institutions 
within the United States may also be required to sub- 
mit TOEFL scores. Verification of financial support 
also must accompany the admission application. 

Academically qualified applicants who do not meet 
the English language proficiency requirements can 
choose to complete an intensive English program 
approved by the University of New Haven. The uni- 
versity has an agreement with the ELS Language 
Centers (ELS) w^ww.els.com and Embassy CES 
wwrw.embassyces.com to provide intensive English 
training.

customized, and students are placed according to their 
academic needs. 

Placement 

Incoming students are placed in courses in English 
and mathematics according to their individual abilities 
as demonstrated through the university placement 
testing program or previous college records. Students

Registration 35 



REGISTRATION 



Day Registration 

Registration is the process of selecting classes each 
term. Registration includes faculty advising, a prelim- 
inary choice of classes, and fee payment. Final regis- 
tration is not complete without these steps. 

Students have assigned faculty advisors who pro- 
vide guidance on academic matters and help students 
with the registration process. Normally, the advisor is 
the chair or coordinator of the student's major course 
of study or another faculty member designated by the 
chair. 

There are two parts to registration: the completion 
of the registration forms and the payment of tuition. 
There may be a penalty fee for delaying either of these 
two processes beyond the end of the registration 
period and/or tuition due date. 

Registration dates and procedures for currently 
enrolled full-time students will be posted in advance. 
A separate registration is required for each of the 
semesters, for summer sessions, for the winter interses- 
sion, and for the accelerated modules. 

All new students who have paid the enrollment 
deposit will be mailed information about registration. 
Prior to the start of the fall and spring semesters, an 
orientation/registration program is held, at which time 
new students will select their courses. 

Social Security numbers will be used on student 
records; students should be sure to bring their number 
when registering. Prospective students who do not 
have a U.S. Social Security number should apply for 
one before registration. Students from other countries 
who do not have U.S. Social Security numbers will be 
given a temporary number by the university; however, 
they are encouraged to apply for a U.S. Social Security 
number as soon as possible. 

In conjunction with academic advisors, students 
are urged to plan their programs carefully before com- 
pleting the registration forms, in order to avoid the 
need for requesting changes. Once the registration is 
completed, students must use signed drop/add cards 
to make changes. 



Please note: No new full-time student will be per- 
mitted to register for classes until: 

1. The nonrefundable enrollment deposit has 
been paid. 

2. Tuition in full for the semester has been received. 
Students relying on financial aid to cover all or 
part of a semester's expenses must present evi- 
dence of the amount of money awarded. No new 
part-time student will be allowed to register for 
classes until tuition payment or financial aid 
arrangements have been made. 

Course Overload Restrictions: FuU-Time Students 

Full-time students who wish to register for more 
than 1 5 semester hours in any one semester must fol- 
low special procedures and guidelines. 

If the total number of courses to be attempted is 6 
(excluding laboratory sections) and is in excess of the 
hours specified on the student's worksheet, the student 
must obtain written permission from his or her advi- 
sor and department chair and, in most instances, must 
have a cumulative quality point ratio of 3.20 or higher. 

If the total number of courses to be attempted is 
more than 6 (excluding laboratory sections), the stu- 
dent must obtain written permission from his or her 
advisor, department chair, and academic dean. Such 
students are required to have a cumulative quality 
point ratio of 3.20 or higher. 

Evening Registration 

Students may register by mail prior to the an- 
nounced deadline. A separate registration is required 
for each academic term students wish to attend. 
Auditors follow the same procedure and pay the same 
tuition and fees as students enrolled for credit. 

The student completes the registration procedure 
by paying tuition and fees. There may be a penalty for 
delaying beyond the end of the registration period. 

To avoid the need for changes, students are urged 
to plan their programs carefiilly before completing reg- 



36 



istration forms . Once the registration process has been 
completed, a change of registration requires the use of 
drop/add cards. 

Course Load Restrictions: Part-Time Students 

Part-time students are restricted to a maximum of 
1 1 credit hours in any given term or semester, includ- 
ing the combined sessions of summer school. 

Students wishing to take more than 1 1 credit hours 
per term or semester must complete the Classification 
Package Change Form (available through the Students 
Records Office) in order to change student status to 
that of a full-time day student. FuU-Time Division 
tuition rates would then apply. 

Alumni Audits 

Alumni who audit courses pay a reduced tuition 
but must be cleared through the Alumni Office before 
registering. Auditing courses at the reduced rate is lim- 
ited to courses at or below the level of the degree 
earned by the student at UNH. 

Certificates 

Students can take their first step toward an under- 
graduate degree by enrolling in a certificate program. 

Each certificate is carefully designed as an intro- 
duction to a particular course of study. Later, students 
may choose to apply toward an undergraduate degree 
the credits they have earned. 

Each certificate consists of a series of courses, usu- 
ally fifteen credit hours or more in a specialized area. A 
minimum of one-half of the credit hours must be com- 
pleted in residence. Please contact the appropriate aca- 
demic department or Nicolas Spina, Director of 
Evening Services and Accelerated Programs, at 
nspina@newhaven.edu. 



dormitory students may therefore continue their stud- 
ies uninterrupted through the entire summer. 

The university welcomes visiting students from 
other colleges and universities who wish to transfer 
summer course credits back to their institutions. 
Credits earned at the University of New Haven are 
generally accepted by other schools, but students are 
urged to consult with their home institutions for any 
special requirements or procedures for credit transfer. 

University of New Haven students can attend one 
or more of the UNH summer sessions to lighten their 
study load during the regular academic year, to reduce 
the time required for a degree, to prepare for other 
courses, to make up courses, or to take additional work 
beyond that required for a degree and still complete a 
program on schedule. 

A list of courses offered during the summer is avail- 
able in March. 

Intersession Courses 

A number of undergraduate courses are offered 
during the period between the fall and spring semes- 
ters. These courses blend both traditional and innova- 
tive methods of instruction, including team teaching, 
field trips, lectures, laboratory work, and research proj- 
ects. A list of courses offered during Intersession is 
available in November. 



Summer Sessions 

Day and evening undergraduate courses are offered 
during the summer in a series of sessions ranging from 
four to eight weeks in length. The first session begins 
shortly after the close of the spring semester. Resident

Ways of Earning Credit 

Academic Credit 

Academic credit is granted on a credit hour basis. 
In addition to successfully completing regular courses, 
students may earn credit by independent study, coor- 
dinated courses, crediting exams or CLEP exams, or 
transfer of previously awarded credit from other insti- 
tutions. These methods are detailed in the following 
pages of this section. 

Transfer of Credit to the University 

Students may transfer to the university after com- 
pleting academic work at other institutions. 
Applications should be made to the Director of 
Admissions. If feasible, potential transfer students 
should visit the university and discuss their transfer 
credit situation with the chair or dean administering 
the program of interest. Normally, the university 
accepts credit from regionally accredited colleges on an 
equivalency basis. The regional institutional accredita- 
tion bodies in the U.S. are Middle States Association 
of Colleges and Schools, New England Association of 
Schools and Colleges, North Central Association of 
Colleges and Schools, Northwest Association of 
Schools and Colleges, Southern Association of 
Colleges and Schools, and Western Association of 
Schools and Colleges. 

Students transferring from another institution 
must have at least a 2.0 quality point ratio based on a 
four-point scale. Credit is normally granted for under- 



38 



graduate courses completed with at least a grade of C, 
or its equivalent. Credit is not awarded for pass/fail 
courses. Credit transferred from a two-year institution 
is generally limited to sixty credit hours and restricted 
to freshman- and sophomore-level courses, unless oth- 
erwise approved in writing by the dean of the school in 
which the student seeks to enroll. Credit granted may 
be used for degree requirements if the transfer credit is 
for courses equivalent to the UNH requirements. 

When a student's application is complete, a tentative 
analysis is made of transfer credit available. Final deci- 
sions on transfer credit are made by department chairs 
and must conform to school and university policies. 
Prospective students may be required to take qualifying 
or placement examinations for specific courses. 

Plans of study for a University of New Haven 
degree should be agreed upon by both the transfer stu- 
dent and the department early in the first term of 
attendance in order to avoid course duplication and 
academic discontinuity. 

For Transfer of Student Status, see following pages. 

Courses Available at Other Colleges 

University of New Fiaven students interested in 
taking courses at other colleges and universities should 
discuss this matter directly with their departments and 
consult the statement of policy established by the 
undergraduate school in which they are enrolled. 

Coordinated Courses 

In order to maintain continuity in a degree pro- 
gram, students are encouraged to use UNH Summer 
Sessions and Winter Intersession; however, courses 
taken by matriculated UNH students at regionally 
accredited institutions may be designated as "coordi- 
nated courses." Credit for such courses is accepted and 
posted on students' permanent records, and the grades 
are included in students' quality point ratios. 

Credit for courses taken at a two-year institution is 
restricted to equivalent UNH courses at the freshman 
and sophomore levels. (Students with junior or higher 
standing at UNH may not take coordinated courses 
at two-year institutions.) Care should be taken in 
requesting coordinated course credit for courses given 



during intensive terms. It is UNH policy that intensive 
terms should span at least fifteen meeting days. 

Prior authorization for a "coordinated course" desig- 
nation must be obtained from the department(s) hous- 
ing the student's major and the related course at UNH. 
The appropriate form must be obtained at the Registrar's 
Office, approved, and returned to that office before the 
course begins. Normally, approval is granted only for 
those courses which are equivalent to courses offered at 
UNH, and/or standard courses in a given discipline 
unavailable at UNH because of frequency of offerings, 
cancellation, etc., or inaccessible to the student because 
of temporary residency at a distant location. Complete 
detailed instructions can be found on the Coordinated 
Course form. 

Students must be continuously matriculated at 
UNH while taking a coordinated course. Approval for 
a coordinated course will become void upon with- 
drawal or dismissal of the student. 

Students are responsible for securing an official 
transcript upon completion of their work. Official 
transcripts must be mailed directly to the Office of the 
Registrar at UNH. 

Advanced Placement 

The university recognizes the program of advanced 
placement available to talented high school students 
through the College Entrance Examination Board. 
Students satisfactorily completing advanced placement 
courses in high school and the final examination pre- 
pared by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) may be 
given appropriate college credit if their courses are simi- 
lar to those offered at the University of New Haven. 

Educational Testing Service Advanced Placement 
examinations are graded from 1 to 5. Credit may be 
allowed when the grade earned is 3, 4, or 5. Students 
desiring to submit advanced placement courses for col- 
lege credit should have all results of these courses and tests 
sent in with their application to the Admissions Office. 

The University of New Haven accepts credit by 
examination from the College-Level Examination 
Program (CLEP), subject to academic department 
chair approval. 



Academic Regulations 39 



The passing percentile for CLEP and subject exam- 
inations is 50. Credit will be evaluated by the appro- 
priate department chair. 

Credit by Examination 

A student who has at least a 2.0 cumulative QPR 
and has independent knowledge of the content of an 
undergraduate course offered by the university may, 
with the approval of the appropriate department chair 
and dean, take a special crediting examination in lieu 
of taking the course. 

Students are reminded that they must earn at 
least thirty semester hours through regular UNH 
coursework if they are to meet the residency require- 
ments for graduation. 

Students may not take crediting examinations 
during the first semester in which they are enrolled. 

External Credit Examinations 

Learning which has been acquired through many 
traditional and nontraditional approaches can be 
measured and validated by objective procedures 
acceptable to the faculty of UNH. This learning must 
appropriately parallel the curriculum of the university 
in order to be awarded UNH credit. 

The Admissions Office maintains a current listing 
of organizations which provide testing and other alter- 
native credit procedures. The following list cites some 
of the more common sources:

EnroUees on active duty in the U.S. Armed Forces 
should arrange for DD Form 295 "Application for the 
Evaluation of Educational Experiences During Military 
Service" to be completed and forwarded to the 
Admissions Office from the duty station. Veterans of any 
period of active service should provide the university 
v^dth a copy of DD Form 214 or other notice of separa- 
tion for each period of service. This may assist in identi- 
fying possible sources of academic credit. 

Advanced Study 

Advanced study courses are offered to qualified stu- 
dents in the departments offering the degrees of bach- 
elor of science or bachelor of arts. These courses may 
include a thesis, tutorial work, or independent study 
which permits the student to work intensively in areas 
of special interest. 

Independent Study 

In all courses of independent study the student and 
an advisor must jointly file a project outline with the reg- 
istrar within four weeks of the beginning of the course. 
This outline shall serve as the basis for determining sat- 
isfactory completion of course requirements. 

Normally, independent study is restricted to no 
more than six credits and open only to seniors, juniors, 
and exceptionally qualified sophomores. Students 
must have at least a 3.0 quality point ratio. 

Regularly scheduled courses (that is, those offered 
at least once every four semesters) are not normally 
acceptable as independent study. 

Field Experience 

In all credit-bearing courses of field experience, 
including internships, practical theses, and work study, 
students will earn credit for the learning gained 
through the activity. The student and advisor must 
jointly file a project outline with the registrar within 
four weeks of the beginning of the course. This outline 
shall serve as the basis for establishing the mechanism 
by which the advisor will evaluate the learning to occur 
and thus for determining completion of course 
requirements. Please consult the academic deans to 
determine any restrictions. 



Academic Status and Progress 

FuU-Time Students 

Full-time student status is attained by registering 
for a minimum of 12 charge credits per semester, or 
equivalent term, on either a matriculated or non- 
matriculated basis. Such status is continued to a suc- 
ceeding term provided a minimum of 12 credits are 
completed in the term of record. Completion is 
defined as receipt of a letter grade of A+ through 
D-, F, S, or U. Other letter grades do not signify 
course completion. 

Full-time students are eligible for all daytime stu- 
dent activities and benefits and are subject to FuU- 
Time Division tuition charges and other relevant fees. 
It is assumed that full-time students will select the 
great majority, if not all, of their courses from daytime 
course schedules, unless needed courses are unavailable 
during the day. 

Part-Time Students 

Students who register for 1 through 1 1 charge cred- 
its during a semester maintain part-time status. Part- 
time status may be held by students attending UNH 
during the day or in the evening. 

Matriculation 

Matriculation is the formal act of registering to 
study for a specific degree offered by the university. 
Matriculation is, therefore, not automatic. A student 
must request matriculation by seeking admission to a 
specific university degree program. Formal acceptance 
into a degree program shall constitute the granting of 
matriculation. 

Students seeking credit to be transferred to another 
institution, or wishing simply to audit courses or to 
take them without working toward a degree, need not 
matriculate. Nonmatriculated students must register 
to take their chosen courses, however, and will be 
allowed to enroll in courses only as space permits. It is 
the student's responsibility to seek matriculation 
should he or she later decide to pursue a University of 
New Haven degree. 



Academic Regulations 4 1 



Academic Worksheets 

Generally, matriculating students are and remain 
subject to those requirements defined in the under- 
graduate catalog and listed on the academic worksheet 
in effect for the semester of initial enrollment. 

If students change academic majors, they will be 
subject to the requirements of the catalog/worksheet 
in effect at the time of the change. 

If students withdraw or are dismissed from the uni- 
versity and decide to return at a later date, they will be 
subject to the requirements of the catalog/worksheet 
in effect at the time of their return. 

Part-time students are permitted a total of three 
semesters (consecutive or otherwise) of break in study 
during which they may continue on the original aca- 
demic worksheet. After the three-semester limit has 
been reached, students will be subject to the require- 
ments of the new catalog/worksheet in effect at that 
time. 

If students initiate a leave of absence, they will con- 
tinue on the same academic worksheet upon their 
return to the university. However, students who fail to 
return after the designated leave of absence period will 
be considered withdrawn students and subject to the 
catalog/worksheet requirements outlined above. 

Students who begin their studies based on a cata- 
log/worksheet which subsequently changes may 
request to use the latest worksheet for that major; 
however, students are not required to switch to the 
current worksheet when a change occurs unless they 
have been away from the university as described 
above. 

Class 

In order to be classified as a sophomore, a student 
must have completed 27 credit hours in an approved 
program; a junior, 57 credit hours; a senior, 87 credit 
hours; a fifth-year student, 1 17 credit hours. 

Transfer of Student Status 

Undergraduate students who wish to change their 
status from full-time to part-time or from part-time to 
full-time must complete a Classification Package 
Change form available from the Registrar's Office. 



Part-time students who wish to enroll in more than 
1 1 credit hours in any term must change their status 
to full-time. Full-time students wishing to change to 
part-time status may become part-time day or part- 
time evening students. To qualify for part-time 
evening status, a student will be restricted to enrolling 
in evening courses only. 

Major 

Each matriculated student must designate a specific 
degree program, called a major. Major program 
requirements are detailed in the catalog under the rel- 
evant department listing. A minimum cumulative 2.0 
QPR in major courses is required for graduation. See 
program requirements for further clarification of spe- 
cific courses/requirements. 

Minor 

Many baccalaureate programs may be supplemented 
by an associated minor program, which normally 
includes five or six courses. The university encourages 
students to augment their major program with an asso- 
ciated minor. Details can be obtained from the appro- 
priate department. 

A worksheet for the minor, developed by the appro- 
priate department, must be submitted to the 
Registrar's office in order for a student to receive credit 
for the minor. A minimum of one half of the courses 
required for any minor must be completed in resi- 
dence at UNH. 

Grading System 

The following grading system applies except where 
otherwise specified, both to examinations and to term 
work. The weight of a final examination grade is a 
matter individually determined by each instructor. See 
the Quality Point Ratio section below for additional 
information. 

A+ -Excellent = 4.0 quality points 

A -Excellent = 4.0 quality points 

A- -Excellent = 3.7 quality points 

B+ -Good = 3.3 quality points 

B -Good = 3.0 quality points 

B- -Good = 2.7 quality points 



42 



= 2.3 quality points 
- 2.0 quality points 
= 1.7 quality points 
= 1.3 quality points 
= 1.0 quality point 



C+ -Fair 

C -Fair 

C- -Fair 

D+ -Poor 

D -Poor 

D- —Poor, lowest 

passing grade = 0.7 quality points 

F -Failure = quality points 

AU -Audit. Indicates course was attended without 

expectation of credit or grade. (0 quality 

points) 
INC -Incomplete. Indicates one of the following two 
possibilities: 

1 . Some work remains to be completed to gain aca- 
demic credit for the course. An INC is assigned 
in the first instance at the discretion of the 
instructor. This assignment shall not be auto- 
matic but shall be based upon an evaluation of 
the student's work completed up to that point 
and an assessment of the student's ability to 
complete course requirements within the 
allowed time limit. Work to remove an INC 
must be performed within the 12 months fol- 
lowing the last day of the semester in which the 
INC is incurred or earlier if the instructor so 
requires. When such work is completed, the 
instructor will assign a final grade for the course. 

2. The student has failed to complete unfulfilled 
academic assignments within the specified 12 
months, and the grade of INC has been entered 
on the student's permanent transcript. No fur- 
ther opportunity to complete the course will be 
available to the student after this time. (0 qual- 
ity points) 

DNA -Did Not Attend. Indicates nonattendance in a 

course for which a student had previously registered 
but not officially dropped (0 quality points) 

W -Withdrawal. Indicates withdrawal from the 

course after the first half of the semester or 
withdrawal from the university after the 
twelfth week of classes. The grade of W will 
not be assigned to any student who has taken 
the final examination in the course. (0 quality 
points) 



S —Satisfactory. Given only in noncredit courses. (0 
quality points) 

U -Unsatisfactory. Given only in noncredit 
courses. (0 quality points) 

Grade Reports 

Reports of the final grade in each subject will be 
mailed to the student soon after the close of each 
semester. 

Grade reports may be withheld from students who 
have delinquent accounts with the Business Office, 
Campus Police, Library, Housing, Athletics, Health 
Services, or the Campus Bookstore. 

Quality Point Ratio 

The academic standing of each student is deter- 
mined on the basis of the quality point ratio earned 
each semester. The quality point ratio (QPR) is deter- 
mined by using the quality points assigned to each 
grade a student earns. 

The quality point value for each grade earned dur- 
ing a semester is multiplied by the number of credit 
hours assigned to that course as listed elsewhere in this 
catalog. The sum of these points is the total number of 
quality points earned during the semester. 

This sum is divided by the number of credit hours 
attempted (hours from courses with grades of A+ 
through F) to obtain the quality point ratio. 

The cumulative quality point ratio is obtained by 
calculating the quality point ratio for all courses 
attempted at the University of New Haven. Course 
grades of AU, DNA, I, S, U, and W are not calculated 
in the overall QPR since they carry no quality 
points. 

See the "Grading System" section above for more 
information. 

Satisfactory Progress 

For students matriculated in the Full-Time Divi- 
sion, satisfactory progress toward a degree is defined 
as successful completion of 24 credits applicable to 
that degree program during an academic year. This 
should include registration for at least 12 credits per 
semester and successful completion of at least nine 



Academic Regulations 43 



credits per semester. "Completion" is defined as the 
receipt of a final letter grade (A+ to F) but not the 
receipt of a Withdrawal (W), Did Not Attend 
(DNA), or an Incomplete (INC). "Successful com- 
pletion" is defined as the receipt of a passing letter 
grade (A+ to D-). Decisions on student status are 
made by the Registrar. 

Students are required to maintain a minimum 
cumulative quality point ratio in accordance with the 
following scale: 

Quality point ratio of 1.75 for 3 to 27 credits 
attempted 

Quality point ratio of 1.85 for 28 to 57 credits 
attempted 

Quality point ratio of 2.0 for 58 or more credits 
attempted. 

Dean's List 

The dean's list honors students who demonstrate 
excellence in their academic performance. Full-time 
students who earn a quality point ratio of 3.50 or bet- 
ter in any one semester will be appointed to the dean's 
list for that semester. 

Part-time students who have accumulated a mini- 
mum of 14 credit hours of coursework at the univer- 
sity will automatically be considered for the dean's list 
at the end of each semester. A cumulative quality point 
ratio of 3.50 or better is required. 

Probation and Dismissal 

Failure to maintain satisfactory progress as defined 
previously will place students on academic probation 
for the following semester of enrollment. Students are 
automatically dismissed when they receive a third pro- 
bation (or, if readmitted from a previous dismissal, any 
subsequent probation). 

When a student's quality point ratio for any one 
semester is less than 1.0, but the cumulative quality 
point ratio indicates satisfactory progress as described 
above, then an academic warning will be issued. 

First-semester freshmen earning a quality point ratio 
less than 1.0 are automatically placed on academic pro- 
bation. 



Students who fail to maintain the minimum QPR 
for satisfactory progress but are not dismissed are 
placed on academic probation. Probation serves as a 
warning that lack of improvement will eventually pre- 
vent satisfaction of graduation requirements. Because 
UNH is dedicated to helping students to be successful, 
probationary students are required to work with 
assigned academic skills counselors. 

Students on probation are limited to four courses 
(13 credits) during the term of their probationary sta- 
tus. They may also be required to retake courses in 
which they performed poorly. The university may void 
a registration for more than four courses. Also, any 
courses above the four-course limit taken at another 
institution during a period of probation will not be 
accepted in transfer to UNH. 

Academic probation of transfer students is deter- 
mined in accordance with the same graduated, mini- 
mum cumulative quality point ratio scale as for 
nontransfer students as detailed above. In determining 
a transfer student's academic standing, the student's 
total semester hours completed-those transferred from 
other colleges plus those received at the University of 
New Haven— are applied to the minimum cumulative 
quality point ratio scale. 

Repetition of Work 

A course which a student has completed may be 
repeated only with the consent of the chair of the 
department which offers the course or if a minimum 
grade is required to enroll in a subsequent course in a 
series. If a student achieves a higher grade in the sec- 
ond attempt, that grade rather than the first will be 
used to compute the cumulative quality point ratio. 
However, both the higher and lower grades in the 
course remain on the student's permanent record. 

When credit for a graded course previously 
attempted at UNH is earned through a method which 
does not carry a grade with a quality point value, the 
previous instance of that course will be removed from 
the cumulative QPR calculation. However, both 
instances will be recorded on the student's permanent 
record and transcript. 



44 



Dismissal/Readmission Procedure 

Students are dismissed from the university at the 
end of each semester or trimester on the basis of the 
criteria listed in "Probation and Dismissal." Notifi- 
cation is made by the Registrar via certified letter. This 
letter will specify the time span for appeal and the cri- 
teria for appeal. 

Upon written submission by the student, an appeal 
will be heard by the Academic Standing and 
Admissions Committee. If the appeal has merit and is 
granted, the student will be so notified by the chair of 
the committee. The committee may require special 
arrangements or conditions to allow the student to con- 
tinue. Satisfaction of such conditions is an obligation of 
the student. 

If there is no appeal or if an appeal is denied, the stu- 
dent will be removed from any courses for which the stu- 
dent is registered that have not yet begun. The student 
may continue in any intersession or summer course 
which began before the date of dismissal but may not 
start any courses after dismissal is effective. Dismissal 
action will be noted on the student's academic transcript. 

A third probation will result in dismissal from the 
university. The student will be allowed to complete any 
incomplete courses (subject to established rules and 
restrictions), and grades/credits earned will be trans- 
ferrable to other institutions. However, the dismissal 
will remain irrevocable, not subject to appeal. 



include evidence supporting the student's belief that 
he or she will succeed if readmitted. 

A student who has been absent from the university for 
one or more semesters must submit a new application 
and pay another application fee. If the student has 
attended another college or university in the interim, an 
official academic transcript is required from that institu- 
tion. Following the receipt of the above material, action 
wiU be taken on the application for readmission. Since 
the student is not matriculated at UNH during this 
period, no coordinated cotu'ses will be accepted. Upon 
successftd readmission, students will register for classes for 
the first term of their return through the Undergraduate 
Admissions Office. 

Readmission is not automatic. The committee 
reviews each application and makes a decision on 
acceptance, rejection, or conditional acceptance of stu- 
dents. 

A student who is academically dismissed and read- 
mitted by the Academic Standing and Admissions 
Committee may be prohibited from continuing with 
the academic program in which he or she was enrolled 
at the time of the dismissal. If the committee readmits 
the student to a new program, the student shall have 
the same automatic right to enrollment in that pro- 
gram as any other newly admitted student. 



Changes 



Readmission 

Application for readmission of students who have 
been dismissed and who either did not appeal or 
whose appeal was denied normally will be considered 
only after the lapse of a semester and only when stu- 
dents provide evidence which indicates probable suc- 
cess if readmitted. 

Unusual circumstances may permit earlier applica- 
tion if a student's dean and department chair success- 
fully petition the committee to review the applicant's 
case. 

Requests for readmission should be submitted in 
writing to the chair of the committee at least three 
weeks before the opening of the semester and should 



Dropping/ Adding a Class 

Students who wish to make a change in class sched- 
ule must complete a Drop Card or an Add Card or 
both. These are available from the Registrar's Office. 
All adds and drops require the signature of the instruc- 
tor and the student's advisor. In the case of part-time 
evening students, drops require the signature of the 
instructor only, although it is recommended that stu- 
dents consult with their advisors. 

The last date to add classes is two weeks into the 
semester and is listed in the academic calendar. No 
classes may be added after this date. All changes 
should be completed prior to the second week of 
class so that students may be properly registered in 
the correct sections. 



Academic Regulations 45 



Withdrawal from a Class 

Students desiring to withdraw formally from a class 
may do so before the last day to drop courses as pub- 
lished in the academic calendar. Formal withdrawal 
removes the student's name from the class roll and 
removes the course listing from the student's record 
and transcript. The student must obtain a Drop Card 
from the Registrar's Office, complete it, sign it, and 
obtain the signature of the instructor and advisor. The 
card is then returned to the Registrar's Office. 

Students withdrawing from a class after the last day 
to drop courses will receive a grade for the course as 
assigned by the faculty. The course and grade will 
appear on the student's grade report and transcript. 

Filing a Drop Card does not qualify the student for 
cancellation of any university tuition or fee. Tuition 
refunds are subject to the refund policy outlined else- 
where in this catalog. 

Changing a Major 

Students wishing to make a change in major or pro- 
gram must meet with the chair of the department into 
which they wish to transfer. In consultation with the 
student, the chair will prepare a change of major form 
and forward it to the Registrar's Office. 

Leave of Absence 

Matriculated students may interrupt continuous 
enrollment by electing to take a leave of absence from 
the university for medical or personal reasons, to pur- 
sue a program of study at another institution, or to 
engage in other off-campus educational experiences 
without severing their connection with the University 
of New Haven through withdrawal. Before taking a 
leave of absence, students are encouraged to discuss 
their particular situation with an academic advisor, the 
dean of their school, or a counselor in the Counseling 
Center. 

The rules regarding leaves of absence are: 

• All noninternational students must file for a leave 
of absence through the Registrar's Office; interna- 
tional students must initiate the leave of absence 
through the International Student Services Office. 



Students who are on university disciplinary proba- 
tion are not eligible for a leave of absence. 
A student who has been dropped or dismissed from 
the university for disciplinary or academic reasons 
is not eligible for a leave of absence until properly 
reinstated. 

A student who has withdrawn as a degree candidate 
is not eligible for a leave of absence. If a student 
withdraws while on leave of absence, the leave is 
invalidated. 

Leaves are not required or granted for summer 
periods alone. 

Normally, leaves are not approved for a period 
longer than two semesters. Under special circum- 
stances, a leave of absence may be approved for a 
maximum of four semesters or two years. 
If students wish to return later than the semester 
originally stated on the leave of absence form, they 
must apply through the Registrar's Office for an 
extension of the leave of absence not to exceed the 
maximum period as outlined above. 
A student who plans to enroll for coursework at 
another accredited institution during a leave of 
absence should review program plans with his or her 
academic department advisor to verify eligibility for 
receiving credit at the University of New Haven. 
Taking a leave of absence may affect a student's 
financial aid. All students receiving financial aid are 
encouraged to contact the Financial Aid Office 
before taking a leave of absence. 
Students who fulfill the conditions of an approved 
leave of absence may return to the university and 
register for classes without applying for readmis- 
sion; such students may preregister for the semester 
in which they plan to return. 

A student who does not apply for an extension or 
exceeds the maximum period but wishes to return to 
the university must be formally readmitted by the 
Undergraduate Admissions Office. Upon successfiil 
readmission, the student will register for classes for 
the first term of their return through the 
Undergraduate Admissions Office. 
All applications for leaves of absence after the 
twelfth week of classes must be approved by the 
Registrar before they are considered final. 
For leaves of absence completed during the first 12 



46 



weeks of the semester, the student's transcript will 
contain no record of courses attempted or grades 
received during that semester. 
• Leaves of absence completed and approved after 
the twelfth week of the semester may result in the 
receipt of the grades for all courses in which the 
student is registered at the time of taking the 
leave of absence. 

Withdrawal from the University 

Students desiring to withdraw from the university 
must complete the necessary form at the Registrar's 
Office and notify each of their instructors. It is the stu- 
dent's obligation to complete this formal procedure. 
Failure to do so leaves the student liable for all of the 
current semester's tuition and fees and may result in 
grades of F being assigned in the student's courses. 

Formal withdrawal must be completed during the 
first four weeks of the semester in order to obtain any 
cancellation of tuition and fees (as described elsewhere 
in this catalog) unless there are clearly extenuating cir- 
cumstances and a formal appeal is made through the 
Registrar's Office. 

Formal withdrawal which is completed at any time 
during the first 12 weeks of the semester will assure that 
the student's transcript will contain no record of courses 
attempted or grades received during that semester. 

Formal withdrawal which is completed after the 
twelfth week of the semester could result in the 
receipt of the grades for all courses in which the stu- 
dent is registered at the time of withdrawal. Students 
should note that formal withdrawal after the twelfth 
week cannot be regarded as complete unless, in addi- 
tion to the above requirements, it has been approved 
by the Registrar. 

Because of the serious ramifications of formal with- 
drawal from the university, students contemplating 
this action should discuss the matter with their advisor 
or a counselor as soon as problems are perceived. 

Transfer of Credit from the University 

Credits may be transferred from the University of 
New Haven, a regionally accredited university, to any 
other college or university. If it is the policy of the 



other college or university, the student may be 
required to complete a letter of authorization allowing 
transfer of credit from the University of New Haven. 

General Policies 

Academic Honesty 

The University of New Haven expects its students 
to maintain the highest standards of academic con- 
duct. Academic dishonesty is not tolerated at the uni- 
versity. To know what it is expected of them, all 
students are responsible for reading and understanding 
the statement on academic honesty in the Student 
Handbook. 

One of the most common forms of academic dis- 
honesty is plagiarism, defined as the failure to cite 
properly the words and/or the ideas of another. 
Students are expected to adhere strictly to accepted 
academic standards of attribution in all of their work 
and should seek the guidance of their instructors if 
they have any questions in this regard. 

Violation of university standards on academic hon- 
esty, including those on plagiarism, will be sufficient 
reason for an F in the course and may be reported to 
the Dean of Students. A second violation may be cause 
for suspension or expulsion from the university. 

Attendance Regulations 

Every student is expected to attend all regularly 
scheduled class sessions. Specific course attendance 
guidelines are established by the academic depart- 
ments or each individual faculty member. 

From time to time, it may become necessary for the 
university to compile attendance records for every 
course in order to meet the needs of regulatory agen- 
cies or accrediting bodies or for other purposes. 

A maximum of two weeks of absences will be per- 
mitted for illness and emergencies. The instructor has 
the right to dismiss from the course any student who 
has been absent more than the maximum classes 
allowed. Please refer to the Student Handbook for fur- 
ther clarification of attendance requirements. 

If a student is not properly registered with the uni- 



Academic Regulations 47 



versity (see Registration section elsewhere in this cata- 
log), he/she is not permitted to attend classes regularly or 
be a part of the course. 

Coursework Expectations 

All full-time and part-time students are expected to 
spend at least two hours of time on academic studies 
outside of and in addition to each hour of class time. 
This expectation should be used by the student as a 
guide in determining how much time to spend on aca- 
demic studies outside of class. It should also be used by 
the student, in consultation with the academic advisor, 
to help determine the student's course load each 
semester so that the course load matches the amount 
of time available for academic studies. 

Make-up Policy 

Make-up examinations are a privilege extended to 
students at the discretion of the instructor, who may 
grant make-up examinations to those students who 
miss an examination as the result of a medical problem 
or a personal emergency. On the other hand, the 
instructor may simply choose to adopt a "no make-up" 
policy. If an instructor does choose to offer a make-up 
test, there are two options: 1) to use university proctors, 
if available, in which case the student must pay a make- 
up exam fee for regular semester examinations and for 
final examinations; 2) to make private arrangements to 
offer the examination, in which case the make-up exam 
fee is charged at the instructor's discretion. 

Graduation 

Graduation Criteria 

Matriculated students are required to submit a peti- 
tion for graduation in the term immediately preceding 
their anticipated commencement. Graduation peti- 
tions must be signed by the chair of the student's aca- 
demic department prior to submission of the petition 
and graduation fee at the Bursar's Office. Petition 
forms, graduation fees, and due dates are published by 
the Registrar each term. 

Graduation is not automatic. Petitions, once filed, 
ensure that a student's record will be formally assessed 



in terms of degree requirements and that it will be sub- 
mitted to the faculty for final approval. A petition may 
be denied if graduation requirements are not met. If a 
petition is approved, a degree will be awarded for the 
appropriate commencement. Only those students who 
have successfully completed the graduation require- 
ments listed below can participate in the commence- 
ment ceremonies. 

A degree will be conferred by the Board of Governors 
when a student has satisfied all program requirements 
and met all university requirements by having: 

1. successfully petitioned and paid all graduation fees; 

2. earned a cumulative quality point ratio of no less 
than 2.0 in all courses applicable toward the under- 
graduate degree; 

3. earned a cumulative quality point ratio of no less 
than 2.0 (or higher if required by an individual 
department) in all courses in the student's major 
field of study; 

4. passed the university's Writing Proficiency 
Examination; 

5. been recommended by the faculty; 

6. met all financial and other obligations and 
conformed to any local, state, or federal law 
concerning graduation; 

7. met the residency requirement of the universit}'. 

If a student does not meet all the requirements as 
outlined above prior to the commencement date, the 
diploma for the specific commencement date will be 
destroyed. It is the student's responsibility to refile and 
make payment for a new petition for a future com- 
mencement date. 

Residency Requirement 

The residency requirement of the university is 30 
credit hours taken at West Haven or at one of the uni- 
versity's off-campus centers. This requirement applies 
to all degrees, undergraduate and graduate. Transfer 
credit, coordinated courses, credit by examination, 
CLEP, Dv^NTES, or proficiency examinations do not 
fulfill the residency requirement. 

To ensure depth of study, the residency require- 
ment must include 12 credit hours of work in the 
declared major for an associate's degree and 18 such 
credit hours for a bachelor's degree. Exceptions may be 
granted only by the dean administrating the major. 



48 



Writing Proficiency Examination 

Because the University of New Haven believes that 
good writing skills are essential for success, it requires 
all its undergraduate students to demonstrate such 
skills before it will confer a bachelor's degree. 

All students must pass the university's Writing 
Proficiency Examination as a requirement for gradua- 
tion. No student will be eligible to receive the BA or 
BS degree without passing this examination. All stu- 
dents must take this examination during the first 
semester after the completion of 57 credit hours. 
Failure to take the examination may preclude contin- 
uous registration. 

The examination will consist of the writing of an 
impromptu theme on one of several topics of current 
interest. If the student's syntax, punctuation, and diction 
are in accord with the conventions of standard English 
and if the argument or exposition is clear and coherent, 
the student will pass. If the student's writing is found to 
be deficient in these respects, notice of the unsatisfactory 
performance on the examination will be sent to the stu- 
dent and to the student's academic advisor. 

Students who fail the examination must take it 
again each subsequent semester in which they are 
enrolled until the examination is passed. Those who 
fail are encouraged to utilize the services of the Center 
for Learning Resources or retake E 105 Composition 
to help them to improve their writing proficiency. 
Passing E 105 and/or utilizing the Center for Learning 
Resources does not satisfy the university writing profi- 
ciency requirement. In no case shall the requirements 
for a four-year degree be completed unless the Writing 
Proficiency Examination has been passed. 

Honors 

Academic honors are posted on the student's final 
transcript along with the name of the degree earned 
and the date the degree was conferred. 

Honors are conferred upon candidates for gradua- 
tion according to the following standards: 

1. An associate's degree With Honors is awarded to 
students who have a quality point ratio of 3.25 for 
the credit hours specifically required for the degree 
program from which they are being graduated and 



who have taken 30 or more hours of required work 
at this university. 

2. An associate's degree With High Honors is 
awarded to students who have a quality point ratio 
of 3.50 for the credit hours specifically required for 
the degree program from which they are being 
graduated and who have taken 30 or more hours of 
required work at this university. 

3. The bachelor's degree Cum Laude is awarded to 
students graduating with a cumulative quality 
point ratio of at least 3.50 who have taken 60 or 
more credit hours of required work at UNH and 
completed all the suggested courses within their 
curriculum. 

4. The bachelor's degree Magna Cum Laude is 
awarded to students graduating with a cumulative 
quality point ratio of at least 3.70, whose quality 
point ratio in all courses counting toward their 
major is at least 3.70, and who have taken 60 or 
more credit hours of required work at UNH and 
completed all the suggested courses within their 
curriculum. 

5. The bachelor's degree Summa Cum Laude is 
awarded to students graduating with a cumulative 
quality point ratio of at least 3.90, whose quality 
point ratio in all courses counting toward their 
major is at least 3.90, and who have taken 60 or 
more credit hours of required work at UNH and 
completed all the suggested courses within their 
curriculum. 

In determining eligibility for degrees with honors, 
transfer credit and credits earned by crediting exami- 
nation will not be considered. Only the cumulative 
quality point ratio for courses completed at the 
University of New Haven is considered in determining 
a student's eligibility for honors.

The university reserves the right to make, at any time, whatever changes it deems necessary in admission re- 
quirements, fees, charges, tuition, faculty, instructors, policies, regulations, and academic programs prior to 
the start of any class, term, semester, trimester, or session. The university reserves the right to divide, cancel, 
or reschedule classes or programs if enrollment or other factors so require. All such changes are effective at 
such times as the proper authorities determine and may apply not only to prospective students but also to 
those who are already enrolled in the university. 



Payments 

Tuition, fees, and other charges are payable no later 
than the university's posted due date. Checks or money 
orders should be made payable to the University of New 
Fiaven. There is a penalty charge of $20 per check for all 
checks returned by the payer's bank. 

The university withholds all issuance of grades, 
awarding of diplomas, issuance of transcripts, and 
granting of honorable dismissal to any student whose 
account is in arrears. 

The university offers a deferred payment option to 
help with education expenses. In partnership with 
Tuition Management Systems (TMS), the nation's top 
rated education payment plan provider, services pro- 
vided include an interest-free monthly payment option 
that allows education expenses to be spread over ten 
monthly payments per year for an enrollment fee of $70. 



The enrollment fee includes toll-free and Internet 
access to education payment counselors and account 
information. In addition, low-interest loan counseling 
and information are available for those students and 
families who need loan assistance or for persons who 
find the monthly payment amounts to be too large. 

Information and enrollment forms for TMS are 
available by calling 1-800-722-4867, or online at 
www.afford.com . 

Application for this plan must be made at least 10 
days prior to the first day of each semester. 

Tuition Refund Policy 

After a formal withdrawal request is initiated by 
undergraduate students, tuition is refunded or can- 
celed according to the following scale: 



Tuition, Fees, and Expenses 53 



Date of Receipt of Percentage 

Withdrawal Request Canceled 

1st week of semester 80% 

2nd week of semester 60% 

3rd week of semester 40% 

4th week of semester 20% 

After the 4th week 0% 

A prorated refund, rather than a refund based on 
the above-mentioned scale, may be made in situations 
involving clearly extenuating circumstances such as 
protracted illness of a student. All appeals based on 
such circumstances must be made in writing and 
include documentation of the extenuating circum- 
stances. Appeals are to be sent to the Directors of 
Counseling and Health Services; prorated refunds will 
be determined by the Committee on Withdrawals. All 
requests for refunds should be initiated before the 
close of the semester of withdrawal. Any student under 
the age of 1 8 must have the written consent of a par- 
ent or guardian indicating to whom any refund, if 
applicable, is to be paid in order to withdraw from the 
university. 

Summer Sessions and Intersession 

In cases of withdrawal from a course or courses 
within the first week of each term, a refund of 50 per- 
cent of tuition is made. There is no refund of summer 
or intersession tuition after the first week. 

The foregoing policy is intended to protect the uni- 
versity, which plans its expenses and bases its budget on 
fiiU collection of tuition and fees from all registered stu- 
dents and assumes the obligation of supplying instruction 
and other services throughout the year. 

Residence Hall Fee and Wididrawal Policies 

1 . A $400 nonrefundable enrollment fee is required of 
new students requesting on-campus housing. $200 
of this fee is applied to their damage deposit. A 
$200 nonrefundable room selection fee, which is 
applied to the fall semester housing fees, is required 
of returning students. 

2. Housing and meal plan fees are billed on a semes- 
ter basis in June and December. 



3. Each returning student is required to have on account 
a $200 damage deposit, which is billed with the stu- 
dent's initial university invoice containing charges for 
housing. Students are then responsible for maintain- 
ing their damage deposits at the $200 level while res- 
ident students. All new students will have a $200 
damage deposit on account. 

4. An activity fee of $50 is billed each semester. 

5. All resident students are required to purchase a 
University Meal Plan. 

6. The housing agreement is binding for the 2006- 
07 academic year. 

a. Students who cancel their housing agreement for 
the 2007 spring semester and remain enrolled as 
hill-time students for the spring semester will be 
billed for the spring semester housing fees. 

b. Students who are leaving the University must 
withdraw from housing by January 8, 2007. 
Failure to meet the withdrawal deadline of 
January 8, 2007 will result in a charge of $100, 
which will be deducted from the student's dam- 
age deposit. 

Proper withdrawal includes: 

• Notifying the Office of Residential Life 
in writing that the student is leaving 
university housing, 

• Checking out with a Resident Director, and 

• Returning all keys to the Office of 
Residential Life. 

7. Housing fees are non-refundable after August 28, 
2006 and January 19,2007.

FINANCIAL AID 



Karen M. Flynn, BA, MA, Director 
Christopher Maclean, BA, Associate Director 

The University of New Haven offers a comprehen- 
sive financial aid program, with students receiving 
assistance in the form of grants, scholarships, student 
loans, and part-time employment. Funds are available 
from federal and state governments, private sponsors, 
and university resources. More than 70 percent of the 
university's full-time undergraduate students receive 
some form of financial assistance. 

Most financial aid awards are based on an individ- 
ual applicant's demonstration of need. Some firnds are 
available on a merit basis for students who have excep- 
tional academic records or athletic ability. Need-based 
awards are available only to U.S. citizens or eligible 
non-citizens. 

Financial aid award decisions are made after careful 
consideration of a student's application for assistance. 
Eligibility for financial aid is based on financial need. 
Need is determined by subtracting the Expected Family 
Contribution (EFC), as determined by the federal 
"needs analysis" formula using the financial information 
provided on the Free Application for Federal Student 
Aid (FAFSA), from the Cost of Attendance. In calculat- 
ing need, the Financial Aid Office attempts to consider 
all aspects of a student's financial circumstances and to 
meet the need of aid applicants through a "package" of 
assistance, generally including a combination of grants, 
loans, and employment. 

Students interested in applying for financial aid are 
encouraged to do so as early as possible. New students 
must apply by March 1 for the fall semester and 
December 1 for the spring semester. Returning upper- 
class students must submit application materials no 
later than March 1. All students are encouraged to 
apply for aid as early as possible to ensure full consid- 
eration for available funds. 

Applications completed after the deadline date will 
be considered on a rolling basis depending upon the 
availability of funds. 



The following application materials must be com- 
pleted and submitted by each financial aid applicant: 

• University of New Haven Financial Aid Appli- 
cation. The application form must be completed 
fully and submitted to the Financial Aid Office. 

• Free Application for Federal Student Aid 

(FAFSA). The FAFSA is required for application 
for financial aid from federal as well as state and 
institutional student financial aid programs. 
Students should list the University of New Haven 
on the form as one of the colleges authorized to 
receive this information. The UNH Title IV School 
Code is 001397. Approximately 4 weeks after the 
FAFSA is submitted to the Federal Student Aid 
Program you, will receive a Student Aid Report 
(SAR) directly from the U.S. Department of 
Education. Students may apply online at 
www.fafsa.ed.gov. 

• Tax Documentation. Applicants must submit 
signed copies of both the student's and parent's 
complete federal income tax returns, with W-2 
forms, from the most recent tax year prior to the 
academic year. Students filing as independents on 
the FAFSA are not required to submit their parent's 
tax documentation. 

• Verification. Federal regulations require that our 
office verify the accuracy of the information pro- 
vided on the FAFSA by an applicant for federal 
financial aid. This process is called verification. 

Other forms and documents may be requested 
from applicants as their aid applications are reviewed. 
Upon completion of the review of an application, the 
Financial Aid Office will notify an applicant of his or 
her eligibility for financial aid if selected. 

Financial Aid Refund Policy 

When students are entitled to a refund as a result of 
withdrawal from courses, refunds of charges and 
financial aid will be based on the institutional refund 
policy, as described in the academic policies section of 



Financial Aid 55 



the university catalog, and on the Return of Title IV 
Funds calculation, as required by Section 484B of the 
Fiigher Education Act. Federal regulations require that 
any unearned Title IV aid be returned to the pro- 
gram(s) that provided the funds. 

Return of Title IV Funds 

A withdrawal requires the university to calculate 
the amount of unearned aid a student has received. 
The university must: 

-Determine the student's official withdrawal date as 
documented in the Registrar's Office. The withdrawal 
date is used to determine the percentage of the pay- 
ment period completed and therefore the amount of 
aid a student earned. Students who have completed 
more than 60% of the term are not subject to the fed- 
eral calculation. 

-Determine the amount of aid earned by the stu- 
dent. The university must calculate earned aid by mul- 
tiplying the total aid disbursed or which could have 
been disbursed (excluding Federal Work study) by the 
percent of the payment period the student completed. 

-If less aid has been disbursed than a student has 
earned, then a post-withdrawal disbursement must be 
made. The university will notify the student or parent in 
writing within 30 days of the withdrawal date that a 
post-withdrawal disbursement is available. The stu- 
dent/parent must respond within 14 days of notification 
in order to receive the Rinds. The student/parent may 
accept all or part of the post-withdrawal disbursement. 

If more aid was disbursed than earned, then the uni- 
versity, the student, or both must return all unearned 
aid in a specific order : 

1) Unsubsidized Stafford Loans 

2) Subsidized Stafford Loans 

3) Federal Perkins Loans 

4) Federal PLUS Loans 

5) Federal Pell Grants 

6) Federal SEOG 

7) Other Title IV assistance for which return of 
funds is required 



Students are responsible for repaying all unearned aid 
a school is not required to return, as well as any bal- 
ance created on their Bursar account by the applica- 
tion of the Title IV return of funds formula. The 
university will notify the student in writing within 30 
days of determining an overpayment. Students must 
repay as follows: 

Loans: repayment according to terms of the loan 
Grants: repayment is 50% of unearned grant. 

Saidents who owe Tide IV grant repayments have 45 days to: 
Repay in full. 

Make arrangements to repay the university, 
Make arrangements to repay the U.S. Department 
of Education. 

Students who fail to take action to repay will be 
reported to the Department of Education and 
National Student Loan Data System (NSLDS) imme- 
diately after the 45 day period has elapsed. 

Additional information and examples of refund cal- 
culations are available from the Financial Aid Office. 

Academic Requirements for the 
Retention of Financial Aid Eligibility 

Students must be making satisfactory academic 
progress andhe. in good academic standing in order to 
be eligible to receive financial aid. 

Students receiving financial aid as full-time under- 
graduates must successfully complete a minimum of 
24 credits during the academic year in order to main- 
tain satisfactory progress; full-time students who 
attend for only one semester during the academic year 
must complete a minimum of 12 credits. Satisfactory 
academic progress for part-time students is defined as 
successful completion of all the credits tor which 
financial aid was awarded. 

"Successful completion" is defined as the receipt of 
a passing letter grade (A+ to D-), and does not include 
the receipt of an F (Failure), I (Incomplete), DNA 
(Did Not Attend), or W (Withdrawal). The require- 
ments for good academic standing are described in the 
"Academic Regulations" section of the catalog.

Teaching as a Career 

Students interested in earning a teaching certificate 
to qualify to teach at the elementary or secondary level 
may do so by entering the graduate program in educa- 
tion at UNH. An accelerated entry process enables 
students in any undergraduate major to complete both 
the BA and an MS in Education in five years. 



Minors 

It is highly recommended that students working 
toward a degree in one area of study give serious 
thought to organizing their elective courses so as to 
receive a minor in a second discipline. A minor usually 
consists of 18 credit hours devoted to the study of 
either a group of courses on related subjects or a series 
of courses offered by one department. 

Students interested in studying for a minor should 
consult with the chair of the department offering the 
minor. The minors are listed below: 

Art 

Bioengineering 

Biology 

Black Studies

Theatre Arts 

Certificates 

Students can take their first step toward an under- 
graduate degree by registering for one of the certifi- 
cates offered by the College of Arts and Sciences. Each 
certificate is carefiilly designed as a concentrated intro- 
duction to a particular subject area and generally con- 
sists of courses totaling 15 to 18 credit hours. Later, 
students may choose to apply the certificate credits 
they have earned toward their undergraduate degree at 
the university.

University Core Curriculum 

In addition to departmental requirements, students 
must fulfill all requirements of the core curriculum. 

General Policies in the College 
of Arts and Sciences: 

• Each student will be assigned an academic advisor. 
Normally, the advisor is a member of the faculty 
in the major department for the student's degree 
program. 



• A student may select a minor in a department other 
than the major department after consultation with 
the advisor or the appropriate department chair. 

• To receive a degree from the College of Arts and 
Sciences, the student must be awarded his/her last 
30 credits by the University of New Haven. 

• A minimum of 120 semester hours is required for 
graduation. 

Coordinated Course Policy: 

To implement the university's Coordinated Course 
Policy, the College of Arts and Sciences has adopted 
the following additional guidelines: 

1. A student may take a maximum of two Arts and 
Sciences courses on a coordinated basis. The courses 
must be either (a) upper-division courses: that is, 
equivalent to 300- or 400-level courses at UNH or 
(b) courses required by the student's major program: 
that is, not Arts and Sciences elective courses. 

2. Coordinated courses from two-year colleges will be 
accepted only for students who have freshman or 
sophomore status at UNH. A student who has com- 
pleted a total of 57 credit hours cannot obtain consent 
for a coordinated course taken at a two-year college. 

3. Any exceptions to the previously stated guidelines 
must be approved by the dean of the College of 
Arts and Sciences. 

4. Students should note that in all cases they must 
seek approval before taking a coordinated course. 

BA, Liberal Studies 

The BA in liberal studies serves students whose 
needs are addressed by an interdisciplinary program of 
study. The flexible nature of this program permits stu- 
dents to integrate courses from across the university 
for the achievement of personalized educational goals. 
Those goals may be directed toward the realization of 
specific career objectives not met by other programs. 

All students earning a bachelor's degree in liberal 
studies must complete the university's core curriculum 
requirements as part of the 120-122 credits required 
lor the degree. 



6G 



Students will also select a minimum of eight 
courses from two of the focus areas listed below, for a 
minimum of 48 credits. Students should choose a 
minimum of three and a maximum of six courses from 
any one of the disciplines within each of the four focus 
areas, which will ensure a breadth of study within this 
program. Students must choose at least ten focus area 
courses from the 300 level or above that they have not 
taken to satisfy core curriculum requirements. 

Focus Areas 

Focus Area 1 : Humanities 

Disciplines: Communication, English, Modern 
Languages, History, Philosophy 

Focus Area 2: Mathematics and the Natural Sciences 

Disciplines: General Biology, Chemistry, 
Environmental Science, Marine Biology, 
Mathematics, Physics 

Focus Area 3: Social/Behavioral Sciences 

Disciplines: Economics, Political Science, Psychology, 
Sociology, Legal Studies 

Focus Area 4: Visual and Performing Arts 

Disciplines: Art, Graphic Design, Interior Design, 
Music, Theater 

In consultation with the Arts and Sciences advisor, 
students will develop a personal plan of study. This 
plan will include an elective sequence of credits to sup- 
port the students academic/professional goals. Students 
may choose their elective sequence from the areas of 
arts and sciences, business, engineering, or public 
safety/professional studies.

about career objectives and wishes to defer the choice 
of a major field. 

Nearly half of the 6 1 credit hours required for the 
degree are free electives. This flexibility permits the 
student to take courses in a number of different fields 
prior to choosing a major. By judicious choice of elec- 
tives, it is possible to transfer into majors in any of the 
schools in the university. 

Students planning to transfer to four-year programs 
in the College of Arts and Sciences should note addi- 
tional core requirements in science and mathematics, 
English literature, art, and social science, as well as spe- 
cial requirements in particular major programs. 

Required Courses 

Students must complete 61 credit hours of courses to 
earn the associate's degree with a general studies major, 
including the courses listed below:

The Co-op Program 

The department participates in the cooperative 
education program (Co-op), which enables students to 
combine their education with practical, paid work 
experience in their career field. For further details see 
"The Co-op Program, " which appears earlier in the 
catalog, or contact the department chair. 

Biology 

Biology provides one of the cornerstones of a liberal 
education by increasing knowledge and appreciation of 
oneself and of other living organisms in the ecosphere. 
It is an active and exciting field leading to careers in 
drug discovery, medicine, and education. As a major, 
biology prepares the student for professional or gradu- 
ate training or for technical and research positions in 
one of the health or life science fields. 



BS, Biology 

Students earning a BS with a major in biology must 
complete 122-124 credit hours. Courses include the 
university's core requirements and the course require- 
ments for the particular biology concentration as indi- 
cated below. 



Concentration in Premedical/Predental/ 
Preveterinary Medical Biology 

This concentration gives the sttident the basic 
entrance requirements of virtually every U.S. college 
of medicine, dentistry, and veterinary medicine. 
Entrance into these colleges is highly competitive, and 
completion of the concentration does not guarantee 
acceptance into a medical, dental, or veterinary med- 
ical college. Graduates have gone on to pursue med- 
ical, dental, and veterinary medical degrees at such 
schools as Georgetown University, Tufts University, 
the University of Connecticut, Ohio State University, 
and the University of Tennessee. Students who com- 
plete the program but decide not to pursue a medical 
career are highly qualified to enter the workforce in 
one of the technically oriented research, health, or 
related life science fields. In addition to the imiversity's 
core requirements and seven free electives, the follow- 
ing courses are required:

Environmental Science 

Environmental scientists are employed by munic- 
ipal, state, and federal agencies and by consulting 
companies and businesses both large and small. They 
work on such problems as wetland mapping and pro- 
tection; watershed management; ground and surface 
water contamination; aquifer delineation and protec- 
tion; marine resource management; crop and pest 
management; natural hazards; regulatory compli- 



ance; environmental health and safety; water, waste- 
water, and air treatment; and pollution prevention 
and remediation. 

Usually, specialized training is necessary if one 
wishes to hold an administrative job at a high salary 
level. Our programs are designed to enable students to 
enter a graduate or specialty school to continue their 
education. Examples of advanced study include a 
graduate program in environmental science or engi- 
neering; a school of forestry, planning, or public 
health; a program in urban ecology or environmental 
geology; or even, with proper selection of electives, 
business or law school. 

The BS degree program establishes a solid back- 
ground in the biological and earth sciences, chemistry, 
physics, and mathematics in the first three years. In the 
fourth year students concentrate on advanced environ- 
mental science courses. 

A combined five-year BS/MS program in environ- 
mental science is offered to students who have com- 
pleted approximately 75 credit hours (five semesters) of 
undergraduate work, have at least a 3.0 grade point 
average, and are recommended by the department.

BS, Marine Biology 

This program is designed to prepare students to 
enter the rapidly expanding fields of resource manage- 
ment, environmental assessment and protection, 
biotechnology, and education related to estuarine, 
coastal, and marine environments. The level of experi- 
ence required for an individual to contribute in these 
fields is not adequately satisfied by an undergraduate 
degree in biology or environmental science; therefore, 
individuals with specific, advanced, and focused train- 
ing are needed. This program, w^ith a strong basic 
emphasis on the biological and chemical sciences, will 
prepare students for these fields.

Minor in Environmental Science 

The minor in environmental science provides a useful 
background for students majoring in other areas who 
have concern for the environment. For example, students 
majoring in political science might well combine their 
program with a minor in environmental science. Another 
useful combination is an environmental science minor 
and a major in business administration or engineering.

The University of New Haven does not offer an 
undergraduate degree in the subject of education. The 
Education Department offers two programs of graduate 
study: Teacher Certification, for those seeking initial 
teacher certification, and Professional Education, for 
currently certified teachers seeking professional advance- 
ment. Both programs lead to the Master of Science in 
Education degree. These programs represent the univer- 
sity's commitment to the preparation of future educators 
for meaningfijl roles in teaching the youth of the twenty- 
first century. The Education Department prepares 
future elementary and secondary school teachers; sec- 
ondary school subject areas include mathematics, sci- 
ence, business education, history, and English. 

All students who are interested in pursuing a teach- 



74 



ing career should contact the Education Department as 
soon as possible during their undergraduate career. 
University of New Haven undergraduates who want to 
pursue a career in teaching may be eligible for early 
admission to the UNH Education Department's gradu- 
ate program through the Bachelor's Plus Program. 
This process allows qualified undergraduates to begin 
their education coursework as undergraduates, enabling 
them to earn a bachelor's degree, a master's degree, and 
Connecticut certification in ]\xsx. five years. Students in 
this program develop a modified major worksheet; for 
example, a Bachelor of Arts in "Mathematics - Pre- 
Education." 

Students in the Bachelor's Plus Program take their 
first Education course during their junior year. This 
course, ED 350 Introduction to Education, provides 
students with an overview of the field of education. 
(All credit requirements for financial aid and under- 
graduate status must be maintained while pursuing the 
Bachelor's Plus Program.) In their senior year and into 
the summer, undergraduates continue to take founda- 
tion education courses. Students then begin an intern- 
ship in a public school, with the public school 
providing payment for tuition. Students attend classes 
in the evening. Our program's field component places 
students in a local school to work with schoolchildren 
under the direction of a classroom teacher. This expe- 
rience gives our students the opportunity to observe 
professional teachers in their own classrooms, gaining 
valuable hands-on experience in an urban and a sub- 
urban school district, linking practice and theory. 
UNH's Education Department is currently placing 
interns in 36 Connecticut public schools. During the 
internship students experience thirteen weeks of stu- 
dent teaching; students are responsible for the cost of 
student teaching. 

By the end of June, students complete the program 
and receive a master's degree, one year after graduating 
with a bachelor's degree. The master's degree is 
tuition-free with participation in the public school 
internship program. Successful completion of all 
requirements will result in UNH's recommendation to 
the State Department of Education for Connecticut 
certification. Students are able to apply for fall teach- 
ing positions in Connecticut public schools. 



Entrance Requirements 

• Students are required to have and maintain a 3.0 
GPA. 

• Students must develop a modified major worksheet 
by their sophomore year. For example, a mathe- 
matics major would develop a worksheet for the 
"BA in Mathematics - Pre-Education." Formal 
admission into the program occurs between junior 
and senior year. 

• Successful completion of Praxis I — or a total of 
11 00 on the SATs for a waiver. Secondary students 
may be required to pass Praxis II (content exam) by 
senior year. 

• Passing grade on the UNH Writing Proficiency 
Exam by the end of junior year. 

• Successful completion of ED 350 Introduction to 
Education. 

• Approval/recommendation from both major and 
education advisors. 

• Completion of formal application for graduate 
school and satisfaction of all graduate school 
requirements. All fees waived.

An English major may choose the concentration 
in either literature or writing. Students in the litera- 
ture concentration develop their analytic skills and 
critical ability by reading widely varied works in the 
English language: William Shakespeare to Walt 
Whitman, Jane Austen to Gwendolyn Brooks. The 
study of English and American literature provides a 
depth and breadth of liberal education as it also 
improves one's thinking, writing, and speaking. A 
major in literature is looked upon very favorably by 
admissions officers of law, medical, and dental 
schools. It is good preparation for graduate work in 
such fields as business, education, urban planning, 
social work, and public health. Employers in many 
areas of business, industry, and government seek col- 
lege graduates with broad knowledge and the ability 
to communicate effectively. 

In the writing concentration, students practice a 
variet}' of written language from the expository essay 
to business and technological applications to more cre- 
ative forms. Some specific areas in which writing skills 
have immediate practical worth are journalism, adver- 
tising, public relations, sales training, and promotion. 
Many companies hire writers and editors for company 
periodicals and reports, equipment handbooks, and 
service manuals. Publishing houses provide employ- 
ment, of many kinds and on many levels, for persons 
skilled in writing. For writers of proven ability, there 
are numerous opportunities to freelance for trade jour- 
nals, newspapers, magazines, and other publications. 
An English major may also prepare for teacher certifi- 
cation at the elementary or secondary level. 

Modern Language Study 

While study of a modern language is not required, 
it is strongly recommended that the student who 
majors in English know at least one modern language. 
Knowledge of a modern language makes one more 
sensitive to the use and meaning of words in one's own 
language. Furthermore, knowledge of a modern lan- 
guage widens one's perspective and deepens one's 



understanding through the insights gained into 
another culture. Students who are considering gradu- 
ate study certainly should be competent in at least one 
modern language. 

The Literary Club 

The English Department sponsors the university's 
Literary Club, which is open to all UNH students. Its 
aim is to further interest in the literary arts. The club's 
primary activity is publishing The Elm City Review, a 
journal of students' art and writing. 

Transfer Credit for Writing Courses 

The English Department automatically will award 
credit for freshman writing courses taken at an accred- 
ited American college or university if the courses are 
essentially the same as E 105 or E 110 and if the stu- 
dent received at least a "C." If the courses were taken 
at a foreign college, the student will have to demon- 
strate his or her proficiency in writing before credit 
will be awarded. In the latter case, the student should 
make an appointment with the secretary of the English 
department for the writing of a one-hour composition. 

The Co-op Program 

The department participates in the cooperative 
education program (Co-op), which enables students to 
combine their education with practical, paid work 
experience in their career field. For further details see 
"The Co-op Program," which appears earlier in the 
catalog, or contact the Co-op coordinator for the 
College of Arts and Sciences. 

BA, English 

Thirty credit hours in English beyond the freshman 
level, with the restrictions indicated below, are required 
for a major in English. All English majors must take the 
university core curriculum and the following courses: 

E 211 Early British Writers

Division of Global 
Studies, History, and 
Political Science 

Courses in Global Studies, History, Political 
Science, Philosophy, and Sociology offer students an 
understanding of the social, political, and cultural 
forces that have shaped the contemporary world. 
Increasingly, citizens of a global society need to gain 
expertise in the rich array of courses offered in this 
division, from an understanding of international rela- 
tions and the analysis of historical events, to the dis- 
cussion of the role of women in modern society. 

The Division offers the BA in Global Studies (ten- 
tative), History, and Political Science, and minors in 
History, Political Science, Philosophy, and Sociology. 
These units also contribute many of the courses to the 
major in Global Studies, reflecting the university's

University 

The BA in Global Studies is an innovative interdis- 
ciplinary major designed to serve students who seek to 
understand global issues that increasingly affect all 
aspects of our lives. These issues include international 
terrorism and crime networks, global stresses on the 
environment, transnational economic issues, and the 
effectiveness of diplomacy in responding to global 
crises and opportunities. The program permits stu- 
dents to integrate courses from across the university 
with real-life learning experiences (internships and 
study abroad) in order to achieve global competency. 
Students in this major will be prepared to enter career 
opportunities in government, nongovernmental 
organizations, or multinational companies.

History 

Professors: Joseph B. Chepaitis, PhD, Georgetown 
University; Robert Glen, PhD, University of 
California, Berkeley; Thomas Katsaros, PhD, New 
York University 

Associate Professor: Edmund N. Todd, PhD, 
University of Pennsylvania 

History provides a framework for a liberal educa- 
tion. The study of human experience-failures as well 
as achievements-is the core of historical study. It gives 
insight into related disciplines in the humanities and 
social sciences and broadens the perspective of stu- 
dents in professional fields of business and engineering 
by revealing the complexity and interrelatedness of 
human experience. 

History is also excellent preparation for a variety of 
careers in business, government, law, journalism, for- 
eign service, and many other areas. Because of the 
great variety of professional programs at the University 
of New Haven, the student interested in history can 
combine this interest with highly technical profes- 
sional training. 

The department strives to meet its objectives by 
teaching not only content but critical and writing 
skills through reading, class presentations and discus- 



sion, research, and writing. Historical methodology is 
stressed in all advanced courses, and students take the 
history seminar in their senior year to sharpen their 
critical and analytic skills. 

Phi Alpha Theta 

The University of New Haven has a chapter of the 
international honor society in history, Phi Alpha 
Theta, which is open to those students who have had 
12 hours of history or more and have maintained an 
average of better than 3.0 in history courses and better 
than 2.9 overall. The university chapter of Phi Alpha 
Theta provides students and faculty with a social and 
intellectual experience beyond classroom work, offer- 
ing films, speakers, and roundtable discussions. 
Students not eligible for membership in the society are 
welcome to participate in all of the chapter's activities. 

BA, History 

All students in the BA in history program must com- 
plete 122 credit hours. These courses must include the 
university core requirements and 36 credit hours of

Philosophy 

Chair: Joel H. Marks, PhD 

Professor: Joel H. Marks, 

PhD, University of Connecticut 

Practitioner-in Residence: David Brubaker, PhD, 
University of Illinois 

The main attraction of philosophy always has been 
and always will be the intrinsic fascination of think- 
ing about the "perennial questions." Is there purpose 
in the universe or only random causation? Does 
human existence have meaning, or is it absurd? Are 
moral obligations real, or are they just social con- 
structs? Is the mind anything more than the function- 
ing of the brain? Are we capable of acting freely, or do 
we behave as nature dictates? Is reason the slave of the 
passions? Is it better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a 
fool satisfied? 

But studying in this field also helps a person to 
develop skills that have wide practical application. 
Philosophy students practice logical thinking, analytical 
reading and listening, and precise writing and speaking. 
They also practice "thinking outside the box" and, 
hence, cultivate creativity, even humor, because their 
occupation is none other than the questioning of fun- 
damental assumptions in all areas. Thus, philosophy has 
served as a useful background for people who have gone 
on to successful careers in diverse professions, such as 
computer systems programming, music, management, 
insurance, investment, marketing, film-making, pub- 
lishing, real estate, technical writing, literary writing, 
government, human services, journalism, law, medicine, 
teaching, research... and stand-up comedy! 

Philosophy courses at UNH examine the major 
world traditions of thought from ancient times to the 
present. Emphasis is placed on ethical inquiry, includ- 
ing the application of ethical thinking to our daily and 
professional lives. 

Minor in Philosophy 

A student in this program must complete 1 5 credit 
hours, as follows: 

Required Courses 

PL 210 Logic 



80 



PL 222 



Ethics 



Plus at least three additional philosophy courses chosen 
in consultation with a philosophy advisor 

Political Science 

Professors: Lawrence J. DeNardis, PhD, New York 
University; Caroline A. Dinegar, PhD, Columbia 
University; James W. Dull, PhD, Columbia 
University; Natalie J. Ferringer, PhD, University 
of Virginia; Joshua H. Sandman, PhD, 
New York University 

A major in political science provides the student 
with a foundation for a career in government on the 
local, state, national, and international levels; for a 
career in law; for graduate school programs in political 
science, international relations, and public policy; and 
for careers in the areas of campaign management, 
communication, public relations, and business. All 
political science and prelaw majors or minors should 
discuss career goals and educational objectives with a 
department advisor within one month of entrance into 
the program. 

Further, advice on the Law School Admissions Test 
(LSAT) and the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) 
preparation courses, which our prelaw and graduate 
school-oriented students are urged to take, is available 
through the department. 

Prelaw majors and minors in the department of 
political science have been especially successful in gain- 
ing entrance to law schools throughout the country. 

The political science faculty grants the Rollin G. 
Osterweis Award for Excellence in Political Science to 
an outstanding political science student.

Sociology 



Coordinator: Alfred Bradshaw, PhD 

Associate Professor: Alfred Bradshaw, PhD, 

f Syracuse University 

Sociology is the study of social life and the social 
causes and consequences of human behavior. Sociolo- 



gy's subject matter ranges from analysis of families, 
corporations, cities, and sports to that of sexuality, 
death, race, gender, and ethnicity as well as the impact 
of demographic and environmental policies and other 
social phenomena. The sociological perspective is 
empirically grounded and sufficiently broad to be rel- 
evant to those considering careers in related fields such 
as research, governmental service, social work, person- 
nel management, advertising, law, medicine, journal- 
ism, social gerontology, and hospitality and tourism. 

The University of New Haven does not currently 
offer a major in sociology. For those students wishing 
to satisfy core or elective requirements, or for students 
who may wish to select sociology or social welfare as a 
minor, a selection of courses is off^ered. 

Minor in Sociology 

A minimum of 18 semester hours is required for 
the minor in sociology. To complete the minor, six 
courses are required. Three of the courses are speci- 
fied. They are:

Division of 
Health Professions 

Chair: Rosa A. Mo, EdD 

The Division of Health Professions of the College 
of Arts and Sciences is the home of science-based pro- 
fessional training programs in health care. Combining 
a strong foundation in biological science with practical 
real life learning and field experience, programs are 
offered in dental hygiene and in nutrition and dietet- 
ics. The Division also offers a graduate degree in 
Human Nutrition, described in the Graduate Catalog. 

Dental Hygiene 

Director: Sandra D'Amato-Palumbo, MPS 

Assistant Professors: Sandra D'Amato-Palumbo, 
MPS, Quinnipiac College; Gw^en Grosso, MS, 
University of Bridgeport; Mark Kacerik, MS, 
University of Bridgeport; Teal Mercer, MPH, 
University of Connecticut; Renee Prajer, MS, 
University of Bridgeport 

The cornerstone of the UNH dental hygiene pro- 
gram is the bachelor of science degree. This program 
enables the student to be involved in dental hygiene 
coursework throughout all four years of the curriculum. 
The course of study integrates science prerequisites and 
general (core) education requirements with foundational 
and advanced-level dental hygiene courses. Graduates of 
the bachelor of science program will be prepared not 
only to seek employment in private dental offices but 
also to pursue employment in a variety of other health 
care settings such as dental hygiene and dental business/ 
industry, nursing homes, centers for the developmentally 
disabled, hospitals, home health care agencies, correc- 
tional facilities, and community health centers. Bachelor 
of science degree students also have the knowledge and 
skills necessary to pursue education at the graduate level. 

Students who wish to exit the program at the end of 
three years of study may earn an associate in science 
degree in dental hygiene. This program prepares gradu- 
ates for necessary board examinations and employment 
primarily in the dental office setting. The associate's 
degree program integrates science prerequisite courses 



and foundational dental hygiene courses into a three- 
year curriculum. Graduates of the program are posi- 
tioned to practice as dental hygienists and, if desired, 
complete the bachelor's degree by participating in one 
additional year of study. 

In addition to the programs described above, UNH 
offers a dental hygiene degree completion program. This 
curriculum is designed for practicing dental hygienists 
who are graduates of associate degree programs. The 
degree completion program is designed to enable dental 
hygienists to transfer credits from an accredited dental 
hygiene program and utilize their academic and work 
experience as the basis for completing coursework lead- 
ing to the bachelor of science degree. 

Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admission requirements 
for all prospective UNH students, it is recommended 
that applicants to the dental hygiene program demon- 
strate satisfactory performance in the sciences and 
mathematics. It is strongly recommended that appli- 
cants have completed both high school biology and 
chemistry with laboratory and two years of college pre- 
paratory mathematics. An in-person or telephone 
interview with the department director or a faculty 
member is recommended; letters of recommendation 
supporting the student's ability to pursue a rigorous 
science-based curriculum and desire to contribute in 
the health care delivery system are strongly encour- 
aged. Admission to the program is limited, and part- 
time study is available only during the first year of the 
curriculum. All students enrolled in the dental hygiene 
clinical course sequence must be full-time. 

Professional Accreditation and Licensure 

The program in dental hygiene is accredited by the 
Commission on Dental Accreditation of the American 
Dental Association, a specialized accrediting body rec- 
ognized by the Commission on Recognition of 
Postsecondary Accreditation and by the United States 
Department of Education. 

Students in the program are provided with applica- 
tion materials for the Dental Hygiene National Board 
Examination (written) and the Northeast Regional 
Board Examination (NERB/clinical). Both the 



Arts and Sciences 83 



National Board Examination and a clinical examina- 
tion are required for program graduates to apply for 
dental hygiene licensure in Connecticut and most 
other states. 

BS, Dental Hygiene 

Students earning a bachelor of science degree in 
dental hygiene must complete 126-128 credit hours. 
Courses must include the university's core require- 
ments for bachelor degree students and the required

Nutrition and Dietetics 

Program Director: Georgia Chavent, Assistant 

Professor, MS, Columbia University, RD, Medical 
College of Virginia 

BS, Nutrition and Dietetics 

Nutrition and dietetics professionals are well 
equipped to enter the health and wellness field. 
Managing the delivery of food and providing healthy 
eating guidance to health professionals, athletes, pri- 
vate practice clients, chefs, food service managers, food 
scientists, and consumers of all ages is the essence of 
the dietetics field and offers exciting challenges for stu- 
dents to prepare themselves for varied and exciting 
career opportunities. 

The Nutrition and Dietetics Program is included 
within the newly created Division of Health 
Professions and is designed for students seeking a 
career as a nutritionist or registered dietitian (RD). 
The program includes management, food, and clinical 
coursework that is granted approval status by the 
Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD), and by the 



Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education 
(CADE) of the American Dietetic Association, 120 
South Riverside Plaza, Suite 2000, Chicago, IL 60606- 
6995, (312) 899-5400. Students earning credits 
toward a dietetics degree may apply for Associate 
Membership in the American Dietetic Association. 

The RD registered dietitian credential is recognized 
nationally, enabling graduates to practice the art and 
science of the nutrition care process throughout the 
United States. Graduates are providing food and nutri- 
tion services in private practices settings, health care 
institutions such as teaching hospitals and extended- 
care facilities, community nutrition sites, child care 
centers, school lunch programs, corporate food com- 
panies, physicians' offices, and specialized programs 
for eating behavior and weight management. 

Students who have earned a bachelor's or graduate 
degree in another discipline may apply credits toward a 
nutrition and dietetics degree or be eligible to receive a 
Verification Statement as a nonmatriculated student 
authorizing their entry into a supervised practice pro- 
gram once they have completed the required dietetics 
courses. A minimum of six to eight Didactic Program 
courses must be taken at the University of New Haven. 

The undergraduate Nutrition and Dietetics Pro- 
gram is also associated with the Master of Science 
Program in Human Nutrition, enabling qualified stu- 
dents to complete graduate study concurrently with 
the undergraduate program. 

Required Courses

The study of mathematics opens the door to a wide 
variety of career opportunities and academic pursuits. 
Mathematics is a major part of the framework of mod- 
ern science and technology. Persons with strong math- 
ematics backgrounds quaUfy for stimulating 
occupations in an ever-increasing number of fields, 
from private industry to government service. 

The mathematics department offers a BA in math- 
ematics. In addition, concentrations in computer sci- 
ence, statistics, or natural sciences leading to a BS 
degree are offered. Students who do not take the com- 
puter science concentration are encouraged to con- 
sider a minor in computer science to be better 
prepared for our technological society. Students major- 
ing in other fields may minor in mathematics. 

Mathematics students have direct access to univer- 
sity computing facilities via computer laboratories 
throughout the campus. Several modern computing 
languages are available. The most modern and up-to- 
date data processing packages as well as mathematical 
and statistical software packages have been installed 
and are utilized in instruction. 

Student Awards 

Each year, the mathematics department awards to 
outstanding mathematics students free honorary 
memberships in the Mathematical Association of 
America and the Society for Industrial and Applied 
Mathematics. 

In addition, the department annually awards the 
Bert Ross Mathematics Prize to the outstanding senior 
mathematics major. This award consists of a set of 
mathematics books and a certificate of achievement. 

The Co-op Program 

The department participates in the cooperative 
education program (Co-op), which enables students to 
combine their education with practical, paid work 
experience in their career field. For further details see

Physics 



Chair: W. Thurmon Whidey PhD 

Associate Professor: Matthew Griffiths, PhD, 
University of Edinburgh 

Assistant Professor: Saion Sinha, PhD, University of 
Kentucky 

Physics is concerned with the most basic aspects of 
our knowledge of the natural world. It is a subject in 
which experiment and theory evolve constantly to pro- 
vide a precise and simple description of the physical 
phenomena around us in terms of a relatively small 
number of physical laws and theories. 

As a fundamental science, physics is at the root of 
almost all branches of science and technology. It has 
provided the microscopic basis for chemistry, has stim- 
ulated important developments in mathematics, is the 
basis of most branches of engineering, and, during the 
past decade, has proved to be increasingly valuable to 
the life sciences. 

Consequently, a basic knowledge of physics is 
excellent preparation for diverse careers: research in 
university and government laboratories, industrial 
research and development, applied science and engi- 
neering, biological and medical sciences, research in 
environmental problems, and teaching at all levels 
from the elementary school to the university. It also 
prepares students for careers in non-physics-related 
fields such as philosophy, business, and law. 

The university does not currently offer a bachelor's 
degree program in physics. The department does, 
however, offer a minor in physics suitable for majors in 
any of the university's schools and departments. A 
physics minor is particularly valuable for students in 
chemistry, environmental science, biology, forensic sci- 



Arts and Sciences 89 



ence, fire science, or occupational safety as well as for 
any student planning to teach any science at the ele- 
mentary or secondary level. 

The physics minor requires a total of 20 credit 
hours of work in physics. Students should plan their 
minor in consultation with a faculty advisor in the 
physics department. 

Required Courses for Physics Minor 

PH 1 50 Mechanics, Heat, and Waves with

Although psychology is one of the newest branches 



of science, it has some very old roots. Psychology 
endeavors to answer some of humanity's oldest ques- 
tions: How does our mind work? How do we interpret 
and use the information gathered by our senses? How 
do we learn things? How do we remember things? 
How and why are some things forgotten? How do we 
acquire language? How do we communicate verbally 
and non-verbally? What kinds of behavior are abnor- 
mal, why do they occur, and how can they be pre- 
vented? In what ways do our intellectual and 
perceptual faculties break down following brain dam- 
age? As the scientific study of mind and behavior, psy- 
chology tries to find answers to these and many other 
fundamental questions. 

Our dedication to these goals requires that students 
study psychology from a variety of viewpoints. Thus, 
students take courses in cognitive, developmental, social, 
physiological, and clinical psychology. Our students also 
develop skills in experimental design and scientific analy- 
sis through the study of statistics, experimental methods, 
and psychological theory. Furthermore, through involve- 
ment in fieldwork, students have the opportunity for 
direct, practical experience in areas such as behavior ther- 
apy and community psychology. 

We offer a general psychology concentration which 
permits students to tailor their preparation in a num- 
ber of areas. This program combines basic science and 
applications and prepares students for further profes- 
sional training in psychology or for careers in human 
services, law, education, business, and industry. We 
also have a specialty concentration in community/clin- 
ical psychology for those students who have well- 
defined professional goals. 

Psychology majors are also encouraged to widen 
their preparation by taking courses (or minors) in soci- 
ology, political science, social welfare, management, 
computer science, criminal justice, mathematics, and 
biology. This ensures that our students' have a broad 
knowledge of many disciplines in the College of Arts 
and Sciences. 

The psychology program benefits from a psychol- 
ogy laboratory building on the main campus. The lab- 
oratory contains facilities for student and faculty 
research. 

The University of New Haven also offers the master 



90 



of arts degree in communiry psychology and in indus- P 301 

trial/organizational psychology as well as a graduate cer- P 305 

tificate in applications of psychology. For descriptions of P 306 

these programs, see the Graduate School catalog. P 34 1

Psychology Club 

Students in psychology have the opportunity to 
participate in the Psychology Club. Its purpose is to 
provide opportunities both to socialize and to develop 
students' interests in the science and profession of psy- 
chology. Throughout the year, the club sponsors guest 
lecturers and a variety of field trips. All students are 
welcome to join. 

Psi Chi Honor Society 

Membership in the university chapter of Psi Chi, 
the national honor society, is open to students in the 
top 35 percent of their class who have completed at 
least nine credit hours of psychology with grades of B 
or better and who are making the study of psychology 
one of their major interests. 

Graduating seniors also may nominate themselves 
for the annually- awarded McGough psychology prize. 

The Co-op Program 

The department participates in the cooperative 
education program (Co-op), which enables students to 
combine their education with practical, paid work 
experience in their career field. For further details see 
the Department Chair.

Multimedia is the use of computers for the inte- 
gration of graphics, animation, video, music, speech, 
and live presentation. Active markets for multimedia 
include (1) the Internet, where careers in web page 
creation and website management have grown expo- 
nentially in recent years; (2) business, where com- 
puter presentations have taken the place of slide 
shows; (3) education, where teachers and parents are 
finding new ways to present their material; and (4) 



92 



the entertainment industry, with the ever-growing 
use of computers for special effects in games, music 
videos, and films. 

Multimedia studies will enable graduates from pro- 
grams in graphic design, music, education, business, and 
many other disciplines to use the computer not only to 
generate traditional print materials but also to design 
interactive programs for use in websites, CD-ROMs, 
business presentations, games, and educational software. 

The multimedia courses and the web page creation 
courses have been designed to allow students to use 
computer, audio, video, and graphic technologies to 
conceptualize and implement interactive interfaces in 
a comprehensive approach that includes the multime- 
dia production process, the technology, and the aes- 
thetic design. 

Minor in Multimedia/Web Creation 

A total of seven courses (2 1 credits) is required to 
complete the minor in multimedia/web creation. 

Required courses (9 credits): 

MM 301 Introduction to Multimedia 

MM 3 1 1 Advanced Multimedia or 

MM 312 Web Creation 
MM 401 Multimedia Seminar 

Plus two of the following sequences (12 credits)*: 

MU 311-312 Multitrack Recording I and II 

AT l^^-l^^ Graphic Design I and II 

CO 212-312 Television Production I and II 

* These courses must be taken outside the student's 
major area of study (for example, music majors may 
not use MU 311-312). Also, note that some of these 
courses have prerequisites. 

Music 

Coordinators: Michael G. Kaloyanides, PhD 

Music courses may be used to satisfy the arts core 
requirements. 

The program in music is unique. Music is studied 
as a worldwide phenomenon, not defined simply in 
the western European art tradition. Students are 



encouraged to view music as a creation of all cultures 
and civilizations on both the folk and art levels, 
including our own urban and ethnic subcultures. Ex- 
posure to various music should lead students to spe- 
cialization in a particular area as upperclasspersons. 

Since music is a performing art, students are 
expected to reach a satisfactory level of proficiency in 
either a traditional western instrument or one central to 
the particular culture in which they choose to specialize. 

A degree in music qualifies students for professions 
as performers, composers, music publishers, critics and 
journalists, teachers, curators, and librarians. Combin- 
ing music with other fields, graduates may enter the 
fields of concert and ensemble management and sound 
engineering areas. There are, of course, countless per- 
formance opportunities for instrumentalists, vocalists, 
and composers. Vocations such as music publishing, 
recording sales and promotions, and music criticism 
and journalism are also available to graduates with a 
degree in music. Students may also pursue careers in 
music education, not only as teachers in schools and 
conservatories but also as curators and librarians. 

Performance/ Practice and 
Recording Facilities 

In addition to traditional performance and practice 
rooms, the following special areas have been equipped 
for the use of students enrolled in the music industry 
and sound recording programs. 

Our recording studios have been designed as both 
teaching and professional recording environments. 
Both control rooms offer comfortable seating for stu- 
dents as well as providing excellent views of the con- 
soles, computer screens, and associated technology. 

Studio A 

Advanced recording seminar classes take place in 
our newest facility, an all-digital computer-based stu- 
dio running Digidesign's Pro-Tools TDM system, the 
industry standard for professional recording studios. 
Additional equipment includes a Yamaha 56-input 
digital console, Roland music workstation, Yamaha 
MOTIF synthesizer, and Universal Audio microphone 
pre-amplifiers. 



Arts and Sciences 93 



Studio B 

The multitrack recording technology classes take 
place in a second recording facility. Equipment 
includes a 24-track analog and two 8-track digital 
recorders for a total of 40 tracks; a 40-input/32 moni- 
tor console for a total of 72 inputs in mix mode; an 
Apple Macintosh computer running Digidesign's Pro- 
Tools system; an extensive selection of outboard (sig- 
nal processing) equipment; and MIDI gear, including 
synthesizer, drum machine, and an AKAI music pro- 
duction center. 

Studio C 

Recording fundamentals classes take place in a third 
recording facility with a l6-input/l6 monitor console, 
a digital multitrack recorder, a computer with digital 
audio and MIDI sequencing capabilities , assorted sig- 
nal processing equipment, and MIDI synthesizer and 
drum machine. 

Workstations

multitrack recorders and a digital mixing board, a 
Macintosh computer running Digidesign's Pro-Tools, 
and assorted signal processing gear. 

Additional workstations can be rolled into class- 
rooms for the Recording Fundamentals and the Sound 
Synthesis/Ml DI classes. 

BA, Music 

The bachelor of arts in music is a dynamic program 
for the study of music within a liberal arts curriculum. 
It is distinctive in its treatment of music as a world- 
wide phenomenon. It is also flexible, allowing students 
to focus on performance or musicology. 

Students focusing on performance are urged to take 
private instruction on an instrument or in voice each 
semester of enrollment. Seniors must present either a 
senior thesis or a senior recital to qualify for gradua- 
tion. There are options in the senior year curriculum 
for courses appropriate for thesis or recital preparation. 

All students majoring in the BA in music programs 
must complete 121-122 credit hours.

BA, Music and Sound Recording 

The bachelor of arts in music and sound record- 
ing is a unique four-year degree program. Its devel- 
opment is based on the philosophy that musicians 
should have a working knowledge of the media 
through which their art is most often heard and that 



sound recordists should have a working knowledge 
of the art form they are recording. Thus, the pro- 
gram is designed to instruct students in three inter- 
related areas: 1) music history, theory, and 
aesthetics; 2) musicianship; and 3) sound recording 
methodology and technique. Coursework includes 
38 credits in arts and sciences, 36 credits in music, 
15 credits in recording, and 34 credits in restricted 
and free electives, for a total of 123.

Visual Arts 

Coordinator: Christy A. Somerville, MA 

Study of the visual arts provides an opportunity for 
self-realization and gives the individual a perception of 
his or her relationship to society. Foundational courses 
in the basics of two- and three-dimensional design, 
color, and drawing, plus work in such major disci- 
plines as painting, sculpture, and the use of computers 
as a design tool, provide the student with the necessary 
vocabulary for effective visual communication. 

Knowledge of the development of art throughout 
human cultural evolution Irom the cave era to present 
day is provided through studies in art history and the 
contemporary art scene. Thus, equipped with a work- 
ing vocabulary of visual form and a sense of art history, 
students progress toward the goal of making a mature 
visual statement in their chosen fields. 

University of New Haven art programs provide 
preparation for graduate study or career opportunities 
in fields related to art, graphic design, interior design, 
and architecture.

BA, Graphic Design 

Graphic design, the art of visual communication 
through words and pictures, is an expanding disci- 
pline. Posters, publications, identity systems, graphs, 
diagrams, information design, signage, and exhibits 
are components of the visual environment in which we 
live. The graphic designer's duty is to bring clarity and 
visual aesthetics to communication through an under- 
standing of theory, design practice, and technology. 

The introductory courses in the graphic design pro- 
gram concentrate on basic design vocabulary, compo- 
sition, color perception, drawing, introduction to the 
use of computers as a design tool, and photography. 
The junior and senior year curriculum focuses on 
typographic studies, illustration, critical analysis, 
problem-solving methodology, advanced computer 
projects, and complex applied design projects, prepar- 
ing the students for graphic design positions in design 
studios, corporations, and agencies, as well as for grad- 
uate studies in the field.

BA, Interior Design 

Studies in the interior design programs are organ- 
ized to focus on the construction and technology of 
the built environment for a broad range of residential, 
commercial, and institutional spaces. Programming 
and problem-solving abilities are developed through 
two-dimensional visualization techniques and three- 
dimensional model building. Hand drawn and com- 
puter-generated drawings and documents provide the 
basis for implementing design solutions. During the 
first two years of the program, students develop their 
theoretical understanding of design and their technical 
drawing skills through courses in architectural draw- 
ing, sketching and rendering, construction docu- 
ments, interior systems, materials and codes, Mghting 
design, and residential and commercial interior design 
studios. Advanced courses in interior products and 
furniture design and specifications; computer aided 
design (CAD); history of architecture, interiors, and 
furniture; independent studies and internships; and 
interior design studies focused on areas such as kitchen 
and bath design, office design, hospitality and restau- 
rant design, retail, healthcare, historic preservation, 
etc. are completed during the third and fourth year. 
Career preparation is developed through a professional 
practices course and a series of portfolio design and 



98 



production courses culminating in a senior portfolio. 

Through real-life learning projects and field trips, 
students develop an understanding of the relationship 
between interior designers and clients, the interaction 
between interior designers and architects and other 
specialized professionals, and methods of communica- 
tion between designers and fabricators. The program's 
award-winning student chapter of the American 
Society of Interior Designers and affiliations with the 
design community for internships and job placements 
provide students with excellent opportunities to net- 
work with and develop a clear understanding of the 
profession of interior design.

The School of Business PACE program 

The School of Business Personalized Academic 
Curricular Experience (PACE) program is open to all 
School of Business majors pursuing a BS degree, 
regardless of the area of study. This program provides 
each student with an opportunity to become engaged 
in a thematic learning experience that focuses on the 
student's career interest and aspiration. Using this area 
as a guide, the student selects twelve credit hours of 
corresponding courses, offered outside of the School of 
Business, with the assistance of an advisor. These 
courses must be thematically linked in a way that 
advances the preparation for career placement and 
must strengthen the academic background in a way 



102 



that supplements business-related expertise. 
Additional information may be obtained from School 
of Business advisors. 

The Robert Alvine Professional 
Enrichment Program 

All School of Business students may participate in 
the Robert Alvine Professional Enrichment Program.

activities during w^hich students meet and network 
with area specialists; learn from business leaders; 
become involved in work-related endeavors such as 
internships, practicum, and job shadowing; and attend 
various seminars, workshops, and forums that deal 
with professional readiness and work-related issues or 
emerging issues that impact on the business environ- 
ment. The Professional Enrichment Program builds 
upon the academic programs by (a) providing cutting- 
edge information and knowledge concerning matters 
that impact on the operation of business and (b) merg- 
ing theory into practice by way of the professional 
expertise and orientation of the session speakers. 

Academic Policies: 

1 . At least 50% of all business program core credit 
hours (i.e., a minimum of 15 credit hours) required 
for the BS degree in business programs must be 
earned through coursework completed at the

3. No credit for coursework completed at a commu- 
nity/two-year institution may be applied to, or 
transferred in as, 300, 400, or 500 level courses that 
are offered by the School of Business. 



4. Courses completed at AACSB-accredited institu- 
tions may be transferred into the business programs 
for equivalent level courses offered by the School of 
Business at all levels. Credits earned at four-year 
non-AACSB accredited schools may be transferred 
only with the approval of the chair of the depart- 
ment offering the course and the Dean of the 
School of Business. 

5. Students pursuing either a dual School of Business 
major or a second School of Business BS degree

Business Programs for both full- and part-time day stu- 
dents as well as evening part-time working professionals. 
Full-time students who are financial aid recipients should 
consult with the Financial Aid Office to ensure that 
Accelerated Program courses meet enrollment eligibility 
criteria for federal financial aid programs. The 
Accelerated Program courses are scheduled in five mod- 
ules throughout the academic year and are primarily

The Accounting department oversees courses in 
accounting, business law, and taxation. While the 
study of accounting has its roots in economic theory. 



the courses emphasize practical application to real- 
world problems and the decision-making process, as 
well as principles and procedures used to produce the 
information required by decision makers. Accounting 
promotes an appreciation for not only the nature of 
accounting information but also the use of that infor- 
mation in the complex process of decision-making by 
individuals, business firms, and government. The 
department of Accounting at the University of New 
Haven seeks to serve the educational needs of those 
involved in all areas of accounting: public, private, or 
government. 

There are many career opportunities for accounting 
students in the business world, government, and aca- 
demia. Accounting professionals are needed by con- 
sulting firms, public accounting firms, and private 
industry as well as by federal, state, and local govern- 
ments. An educational opportunity is also available to 
students who desire to meet the 150-credit-hour edu- 
cational requirements necessary to take the Certified 
Public Accounting (CPA) examination. These addi- 
tional educational requirements may be taken at the 
graduate level, leading to an MBA degree.

The Accounting major is selected by students wish- 
ing to pursue a career in management accounting or in

Marketing Programs 

The discipline of marketing investigates business 
practices and strategies needed to attract customers 
and compete effectively in a global free-market system. 
Although the curriculum places a greater emphasis on 
practices and strategies in the domestic environment, 
international issues are explored in most courses and in 
an international marketing course. Newer coverage 
includes the emerging impact of the Internet on chan- 
nels of distribution and on promotion practices. Skills 
are also developed in the traditional areas of consumer 
analysis and marketing research. 

BS, Marketing (Business program) 

Marketing is the study of the processes for develop- 
ing and distributing goods and services attractive to 



108 



selected customer groups. These markets may include 
both consumer and organizational (industrial, govern- 
mental, or non-profit) groups. An understanding of 
these customers results fi-om studies of psychological 
and sociological perspectives and from the use of 
research tools. Based on this understanding, competi- 
tive strategies and distribution channels can be devised 
to reach the desired customers more effectively. The 
emergence of e-commerce has substantially modified 
some of the existing strategies for understanding the 
customer and for managing channels of distribution. 

Students earning a BS in Marketing are required to 
complete 121 credit hours, including the Core 
Curriculum (37 credit hours), Core Curriculum

The department of Economics and Finance offers 
courses in both economics and finance. Faculty in 
the department have a wide range of research interests, 
as well as extensive experience in government policy- 
making, consulting, and industry. 

Economics courses provide a basis for an under- 
standing of economic structures, a wide range of 
domestic and international issues, and trends in the 
economic Hfe of modern societies. These courses offer 
training in analysis of economic problems as an aid to 
the evaluation of economic policies. The minor in 
Behavioral Economics addresses the emerging impor- 
tance of understanding market behavior and the 
heuristics and biases that impact on decision making 
in the context of uncertainty. 

Finance, as an area of study, is designed to promote 
an analytic appreciation of the financial system and the 
financial decision-making process in which society — 
through its individuals, business firms, and govern- 
ments — is continually engaged. In particular, the 
study of finance provides a structured analysis of the 
financial system and the financial decision-making 
process as determinants of the economic wealth of the 
individual, the business firm, and the nation. The study 
of finance enables the student to pursue the prepara- 
tion required for a number of financial decision-mak- 
ing positions in government and industry, including 
the financial services industry. Both a BS and a minor 
in Finance are available for the interested student.

At this time, as all of society's systems — govern- 
mental, technological, societal, educational, industrial, 
and military, as well as business-related — are becom- 
ing increasingly sophisticated and complex, there is a 
growing need for skilled managers that is unrivaled 
historically. Contemporary managers must attend to 
global competition, understand complex logistical 
matters, maintain service quality and continuous 
improvement, and monitor both the internal and 
external business environments. In response to these 
needs, the management programs seek to provide stu- 
dents with the foundations of knowledge and skill nec- 
essary for both obtaining and advancing in 
professional positions within the managerial frame- 
work of both national and international corporations. 
The department of Management offers a diverse set of 
degree programs in the following general areas: 
Management, Management of Sports Industries, 
Hospitality and Tourism, and Public Administration. 
Minors are also available, including minors in niche 
areas such as Entrepreneurship.

education program (Co-op), which enables students to 
combine their education with practical, paid work 
experience in their career field. For further details see 
"The Co-op Program" section elsewhere in the catalog. 



BS, Management (Business program) 

In order to function effectively in a variety of orga- 
nizational situations, administrators and managers

tial for managers who wish to both participate effec- 
tively with others in the administrative and managerial 
group and also administer and oversee activities effec- 
tively in critical areas of responsibility. The depart- 
ment's program in Management provides the requisite 
skill sets for success in this demanding and increas-

Minor in Entrepreneurship 
(Business Program Majors) 

Throughout much of the United States, many large 
enterprises began as a small business initiated by an 
entrepreneur with an idea or vision. Still today, ninety- 
five percent of all businesses in the United States are 
small businesses. Entrepreneurship and small busi- 
nesses are dynamic and powerful interactive forces in 
these increasingly difficult economic times. 

The University of New Haven offers a minor in 
entrepreneurship as a means of preparing students 
who are considering a business start-up, purchasing an 



existing business, or joining the family business fol- 
lowing graduation. The minor may also provide an 
"intrapreneurship" foundation for students who aspire 
to work in big business. As such, the minor pursues a 
multidisciplinary approach to entrepreneurship that 
integrates the business disciplines with communica- 
tion, negotiation, and presentation skills. Moreover, 
the program merges theory into practice by linking 
emerging academic developments with the most effec- 
tive business approaches.

TAGLIATELA SCHOOL 
OF ENGINEERING 



Barry J. Farbrother, PhD, Dean 

Michael A. Collura, PhD, Associate Dean 

The Tagliatela School of Engineering (TSoE) offers 
a variety of programs in engineering and the applied 
sciences. These two areas encompass a number of 
dynamic professions in which practitioners use their 
knowledge, judgment, and creativity to solve some of 
the most important and interesting challenges facing 
society. These challenges and the changing face of 
engineering will shape the world of the twenty-first 
century — a world of exotic materials, new sources of 
energy, staggering telecommunications and computing 
capabilities, cybernetic factories, and needed public 
works. In the coming years we anticipate exciting new 
opportunities to emerge at the frontier between engi- 
neering and the life sciences. 

Few professions can match engineering for its chal- 
lenge and excitement or for its essential spirit of play. 
These qualities are true for each of the school's seven 
engineering programs - in chemical, civil, computer, 
electrical, general, industrial, and mechanical engineer- 
ing - and also for its applied science programs in com- 
puter science, information technology, and chemistry. 
The rewards of an engineering career include challeng- 
ing tasks, social status, and appealing working condi- 
tions and compensation. All of these are in addition to 
the great satisfaction of seeing your accomplishments 
in the real world of engineered components and sys- 
tems. But a degree in engineering or the applied sci- 
ences can also lead to a wide variety of careers outside 
of the realm of engineering and applied science. 
Engineers are problem solvers, and the ability to ana- 
lyze a problem and find a viable solution is a highly 
sought after attribute in many walks of life. 
Engineering skills provide an entry to business, law, 
medicine, politics, and entrepreneurship. Innovation 
will play a major role in the future, and individuals who 



are able to generate creative solutions to the myriad of 
problems that face society will be well rewarded. 

Vision 

The vision of the Tagliatela School of Engineering 
is to be the acknowledged regional leader in innovative 
engineering and applied science education.

learning environment in order to maximize student 
success. Students are prepared for evolving profes- 
sional careers by the school's fostering of a multidisci- 
plinary perspective, instilling broad problem-solving, 
design, organizational, and communications skills. 
Graduates are prepared to practice ethical behavior, 
engage in career-long learning, and contribute to the 
betterment of society. All community members value 
diversity and expect that graduates will bring recogni- 
tion to themselves and to the institution throughout 
their professional careers. In the context of our his- 
torically successful programs, we strive to maintain a 
continuous quality-improvement environment that: 

• sustains a positive environment for the critical eval- 
uation of new ideas,

Choosing a Major 

The University of New Haven is one of a small 
number of universities where entering freshmen are 
admitted directly to the engineering school. A student 
may be accepted into the Tagliatela School of 
Engineering without declaring a major in a specific 
engineering discipline. This is possible because the 
freshman year curriculum is essentially common to all 
engineering programs (see "Multidisciplinary 
Foundation for Engineering Programs" below). 
Students who have chosen a major should follow the 
recommended first-year program for the major. 
Students who are undecided about their choice of 
engineering major should choose the General 
Engineering degree program and follow the recom- 
mended first-year program. 

Those students wishing to complete an engineering 
degree program other than General Engineering are 



strongly advised to decide on their new program by 
the beginning of the sophomore year. Students inter- 
ested in Chemistry, Computer Science, or Information 
Technology are advised to choose that option in their 
first year. 

Academic Advising 

Faculty members within the Tagliatela School of 
Engineering take very seriously their responsibilities as 
academic advisors. Good academic advising helps a 
student make wise academic decisions and avoid 
course sequencing errors that can delay graduation. 
Each student is encouraged to meet with his or her 
academic advisor as soon as possible after commence- 
ment of fall semester of the freshman year and on a 
regular basis of at least once per semester. 

All newly admitted students, including transfer stu- 
dents, are assigned a faculty advisor in the department 
responsible for their chosen degree program. Students 
choosing General Engineering are assigned a faculty 
advisor from the Division of Multidisciplinary 
Engineering Systems. 

The Multidisciplinary Foundation for 
Engineering Programs 

To operate effectively in today's workforce, engi- 
neers need to have a multidisciplinary perspective along 
with substantial disciplinary depth. The faculty of the 
Tagliatela School of Engineering have developed an 
innovative approach to achieve this perspective: The 
Multidisciplinary Engineering Foundation Spiral 
Curriculum. This curricular model enables the needed 
mix of breadth and depth, along with the desired pro- 
fessional skills, by providing carefiilly crafted, well- 
coordinated curricular experiences in the first two 
years. Full details of this program can be found under 
the Division of Multidisciplinary Engineering Systems 
(below). 

University Core Curriculum 

In addition to school and department require- 
ments, students must hilfill all requirements of the 
university core curriculum. (See University Curricula 
section ol the catalog.) Included within the core cur- 



120 



riculum are requirements in the humanities and social 
sciences. For details, see the section below under 
Social Science and Humanities Electives. 

General Policies of the Tagliatela School of 
Engineering 

The following definitions apply to all degree pro- 
grams within the TSoE: 

Transfer Credit 

Transfer of credits for previous academic work is 
coordinated by the dean's office and assessed by pro- 
gram coordinators according to school policy, 
described in the document "Guidelines on Transfer 
Credit Awards." All transferred courses are the result 
of a determination of equivalence of course content 
and level. Courses for transfer claiming engineering 
content will normally be accepted only from ABET- 
accredited programs. 

Transfer students whose previous academic work 
results in placement beyond the freshman year may be 
given the option of following the program worksheet 
in effect for upper-level students in the chosen major. 
Such a choice may shorten the time required to com- 
plete the degree program. 

Social Science and Humanities Electives 

The work of engineers and applied scientists 
requires creative solutions which are socially, politi- 
cally, economically, culturally and aesthetically accept- 
able. Courses in the social sciences and humanities 
help to develop awareness of the needs of the global 
society and contribute to the ability of a scientist/engi- 
neer to communicate technical options to the broad 
constituencies that are affected by technical solutions. 
Specific courses chosen in these areas must satisfy the 
university core curriculum requirements. 

Mathematics Electives 

These are courses from the Mathematics depart- 
ment at the 300 or higher level. Faculty advisors 
should be consulted for recommendations on the 
mathematics electives most relevant to a student's 
career objectives. 

Technical Electives 

Technical electives are upper-level courses directly 



pertinent to a student's major field of study. These 
electives must be approved by the student's academic 
advisor and are usually chosen from engineering school 
courses. Faculty approval is important to ensure that 
students meet the prerequisite requirements. 

Design Electives 

Design electives within each program are those 
upper-level engineering courses that incorporate sub- 
stantial design activities. Suitable courses include a 
(D) following the course title. These courses may also 
be used as technical electives. 

The Co-Operative Education Program 

Students in the Tagliatela School of Engineering 
may participate in the co-operative education program 
(Co-Op), which enables students to gain practical, 
paid work experience in an activity associated with 
their professional degree program. The program is an 
example of the School of Engineering's commitment 
to experiential learning, whereby students are able to 
gain valuable practical experience prior to graduation. 
For fiirther details see "The Co-Op Program," which 
appears earlier in this catalog, or contact the TSoE 
Co-op coordinator.

Jacob Finley Buckman Endow^ed Chair and 
Scholarships 

The Jacob Finley Buckman Endowed Chair of 
Chemistry and Chemical Engineering was established 
in 1981 by Mrs. Clarice Buckman of New Haven in 
memory of her late husband, Jacob Finley Buckman, 
the cofounder of Enthone Corporation. The Clarice 
Buckman Scholarships are awarded to juniors major- 
ing in Chemical Engineering or Chemistry. 

Chemical Engineering 

Chemical engineers are creative problem solvers. 
They apply the fundamental principles of chemistry, 
physics, biology, mathematics, and economics to the 
solution of practical problems and to the search for 
new knowledge. Traditionally, chemical engineers 
develop, design, optimize, and operate processes that 
convert material and energy resources into new or 
improved products. It was practitioners of this disci- 
pline who developed the technological infrastructure 
for industries such as chemicals, petroleum products, 
plastics, textiles, pharmaceuticals, and food processing. 

Chemical engineers are at the forefront in imple- 



menting emerging technologies such as bio-processing 
and biomaterials and nanotechnology. Chemical engi- 
neers are also concerned with the critical areas of 
resource depletion, energy conservation, pollution pre- 
vention and control, improved control of processes, 
and enhanced productivity. The major has also proven 
to be an excellent background for the study of law, 
medicine, or business. 

Mission and Objectives 

The mission of the Chemical Engineering program 
is to prepare a diverse student body for entrance into 
the chemical engineering profession and for evolving 
professional careers. The following four program objec- 
tives have been set to achieve the program's mission: 

• To graduate students who have the technical 
knowledge and professional skills necessary for the 
current practice of engineering. 

• To prepare students for technical careers which 
require a high level of interaction and communica- 
tion with others and sensitivity to the broad social 
scope of engineering problems. 

• To prepare graduates to apply an organized 
approach to competently address problems and 
opportunities through careful problem formula- 
tion, critical analysis of inputs, creative solutions, 
and the ability to learn what is needed to solve the 
complex problem. 

• To assure that students have a firm understanding 
of the terminology, techniques, and methods 
employed by chemical engineers. 

Based on the program objectives, ten program out- 
comes have been established: 

• Students can demonstrate the understanding of 
and an ability to apply concepts in basic science 
and mathematics and have a working knowledge of 
advanced chemistry. 

• Students can demonstrate the ability to design and 
conduct experiments, analyze data obtained, assess 
overall results, and make recommendations regard- 
ing the outcome of their work. 

• Students can demonstrate proficiency in the use of 
computer tools typical of those used in the process 
industries for research, development, design, and 



122 



operation activities. 

• Students can demonstrate the ability to function as 
an integral member of a multidisciplinary team. 

• Students are aware that solutions to technical prob- 
lems have wide-ranging effects on society. They 
can demonstrate the ability to incorporate consid- 
eration of such effects into their solutions. 

• Students can demonstrate the ability to effectively 
communicate technical ideas to a variety of audi- 
ences. 

• Students can demonstrate the ability to develop 
solutions to open-ended problems which achieve 
balance among competing constraints. 

• Students can demonstrate the ability to apply an 
engineering approach to the solution of problems. 

• Students can demonstrate the ability to think cre- 
atively and to extend their knowledge through 
independent learning. 

• Students can demonstrate the ability to apply the 
concepts of balances, rate, and equilibrium rela- 
tionships and of process/product/equipment analy- 
sis and design. 

Achievement of these four objectives and ten out- 
comes is assessed by a variety of means, including 
course evaluations, exit surveys, alumni surveys, and 
employer surveys. 

BS, Chemical Engineering 

Program Coordinator: W. David Harding, PhD 

The BS in Chemical Engineering degree is accred- 
ited by the American Institute of Chemical Engineers 
(AIChE) and by the Engineering Accreditation 
Commission of the Accreditation Board for 
Engineering and Technology (EAC/ABET). The 
Chemical Engineering program is challenging, but for 
those genuinely interested it develops the depth of 
knowledge required to embark on a fascinating and 
satisfying professional career in industry or govern- 
ment or to continue study at the graduate level. 

The freshman year in Chemical Engineering is like 
that of the other engineering disciplines (see 
"Multidisciplinary Foundation for Engineering 



Programs"). Chemical Engineering students take EAS 
120, Chemistry with Application to Biosystems, dur- 
ing the freshman year. 

The first chemical engineering course, taken in the 
sophomore year, is the beginning of a well-integrated 
sequence that builds on the multidisciplinary founda- 
tion. Each chemical engineering course contributes 
uniquely to the development of skills in problem solv- 
ing, communication, computer usage, and engineer- 
ing design. Several common themes weave 
throughout these courses, including safety, concern for 
the environment, and practical application of knowl- 
edge to real-world problems. A comprehensive labo- 
ratory experience contributes to these educational 
objectives through the use of modern, industrial-type 
data acquisition and control instruments and comput- 
ers on pilot-scale process equipment. Comprehensive 
design projects in the senior year enable the student to 
synthesize and focus the entire curriculum. Several 
engineering or science electives allow flexibility in the 
program, to include areas of special interest. 

Students in the Chemical Engineering program sat- 
isfy the university core competency requirements 
through specified courses and elective choices. 
University core competency categories are indicated in 
the list below for such electives.

Mission: 

The mission of the department is to prepare stu- 
dents from diverse backgrounds for professional prac- 
tice and continued growth in electrical engineering, 
computer engineering, computer science, and infor- 
mation technology. 

Electrical & Computer Engineering 

The Electrical and Computer Engineering curricu- 
lums are designed to provide students with the skills 
and the basic scientific background needed to become 
proficient in today's technology and to keep abreast of 
future developments in the electrical and computer 
engineering profession. 

Recognizing the changing trend in engineering 
education, the Electrical and Computer Engineering 
programs have adopted a multidisciplinary approach 
for teaching and learning by incorporating a series of 
newly developed project-oriented courses based on the 
spiral curriculum. 

The early part of the programs emphasizes electri- 
cal and computer engineering skills that form the 
background for the upper-level elective and design 
courses. Physics, chemistry, mathematics, computer 
programming, basic engineering science, and general 
education courses supplement the required and elec- 



tive electrical and computer engineering courses. 

The upper-level electrical and computer engineer- 
ing coursework provides areas of concentration for in- 
depth study. Students can choose additional technical 
electives from outside the area of concentration to pro- 
vide more breadth of knowledge. 

To influence our society's evolution, the electrical 
and computer engineer must acquire an understand- 
ing of our society, our cultural heritage, and the 
human condition. The engineer must communicate 
ideas to other engineers and to the public. The 
Electrical and Computer Engineering programs enable 
this via liberal and humanistic studies. The university 
core requirements allow students to expand their cul- 
tural and intellectual horizons by exposing them to the 
humanities and social sciences. Students learn written 
and oral communication skills in the core courses as 
well as in multidisciplinary engineering-science 
courses in the freshman and sophomore years. 
Students apply these skills in the humanities and social 
science courses as well as in laboratory/design courses 
in their major. 

An important feature of the electrical and com- 
puter engineering curriculum is the design experience. 
Our students develop the ability to analyze appropri- 
ate models, conduct empirical tests, gather relevant 
information, interpret empirical tests, develop appro- 
priate models, develop alternative solutions, formulate 
problems, and synthesize in our laboratory sequence. 
This sequence of courses takes the student in gradual 
steps from a well-structured laboratory experiment in 
the sophomore year to an open-ended design project 
in the senior year. This allows students to gain practi- 
cal experience in engineering design. 

Internship Requirement 

The internship program is intended to enrich the 
academic experience of our undergraduate students, 
providing exposure to and participation in a working 
engineering environment. Each internship must 
involve a partnership consisting of the student, faculty, 
and employers/organizations to provide each student 
intern with an optimal experience. A minimum of 300 
hours performing relevant engineering duties is 
required prior to graduation. Students must complete 



Engineering 127 



60 credit hours toward the bachelor's degree in 
Electrical or Computer Engineering before an intern- 
ship is attempted. 

The internship carries no credit for the degree; 
however, the requirement may be satisfied utilizing a 
co-op position, summer employment, and part-time 
or full-time positions that are approved by the stu- 
dent's employer and by the department/internship 
coordinator as relevant to the goals of the internship 
experience. A waiver (or substitution) of the intern- 
ship requirement may be granted for students who are 
employed in the field, subject to a formal review by the 
department/internship coordinator. The student's 
request for such a waiver must be initiated one year 
prior to the anticipated graduation date. 

BS, Computer Engineering 

Program Coordinator: Bijan Karimi, PhD 

The BS in Computer Engineering degree is accred- 
ited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of 
the Accreditation Board for Engineering and 
Technology (EAC/ABET). 

Computer engineering is concerned with design 
and implementation of digital systems such as com- 
puter systems, computer-based control systems, inter- 
faces between digital and analog systems, interfaces 
between hardware and software, and control software 
for embedded computer systems. This program spans 
the disciplines of both electrical engineering and com- 
puter science and can be described as bridging the area 
between the two. 

Computers are used in almost every device or sys- 
tem manufactured today, from large multi-computer 
systems to cell phones and credit card reading devices. 
In addition, they are used in signal processing applica- 
tions, speech recognition, medical imaging, and picture 
and data communication. The Internet is possible in 
part because of advances made in computing machines 
and data communication by people working in the 
capacity of computer engineers. Careers for computer 
engineers are found in all phases of the production of 
these devices and systems, from design, manufacturing, 
and maintenance to marketing and sales. 

(For more details on the Computer Engineering 



program and the internship requirement, please see 
"Electrical & Computer Engineering" earlier in this 
section.) 

Educational Objectives 

The educational objectives of the Computer 
Engineering program prepare students for professional 
practice and lifelong learning. Program graduates will: 

• Demonstrate high-quality performance as com- 
puter engineers in industry who have a strong the- 
oretical background for pursuing graduate studies. 

• Demonstrate the ability for leadership and under- 
standing of human relationships in general. 

• Be able to function as innovators, entrepreneurs, 
and problem solvers in industry or academia. 

• Demonstrate the ability to function as members of 
multidisciplinary teams or as team leaders and 
secure high-level managerial positions in their dis- 
cipline. 

• Demonstrate awareness of, care about, and be able 
to deal with societal and global issues such as envi- 
ronmental and ethical concerns. 

Design and problem solving are the central themes 
of this program. It combines the engineering and 
hardware approach of electrical engineering with the 
knowledge of computing structures and the algorith- 
mic approach of computer science. The first two years 
of the program concentrate on basic science, mathe- 
matics, and engineering. The last two years are com- 
prised of courses in digital systems, computer systems, 
networks, electrical systems, and design of software 
systems. Three electives in the fourth year give the stu- 
dent an opportunity to explore a hardware- and/or 
software-oriented program. The final year includes a 
yearlong senior design project in which the student 
designs a device, system, or software application. 
Depending on the student's interests, the project can 
be hardware- and/or software-oriented. Industry- 
based projects are encouraged. The program also has a 
general education component in communications, 
economics, and the humanities needed to create a 
well-rounded professional. 

Required Courses 

Students must complete a total of 128 credit hours 



128 



to earn the Bachelor of Science degree in Computer 
Engineering. Humanities or social science electives 
must be selected to fulfill the core curriculum require- 
ments of the university, and students must complete 
the internship requirement. 

Technical electives are 300-level or higher CS or EE 
courses that fit into the student's plan of study and are 
approved by the academic advisor. One technical elec- 
tive may be taken outside the specified areas with the 
approval of the academic advisor. In the final year of 
study the student takes a rwo-semester senior design 
sequence, CEN 457 and CEN 458. In the first semes- 
ter the student selects a topic, completes a literature 
search, and commences the design process. In the sec- 
ond semester, the student completes the design, imple- 
ments the project, and presents the results. 

The following list shows the sequence of courses 
that a student should follow to complete the program 
in four years.

power generation and distribution, control, and 
instrumentation. Digital circuits and computers are 
important and integral parts of such systems and are 
widely used by electrical engineers in their design and 
development. The electrical engineer is also con- 
cerned with the devices that make up systems such as 
transistors, integrated circuits, rotating machines, 
antennas, lasers, and computer-memory devices. 

(For more details on the Electrical Engineering pro- 
gram and the internship requirement, please see 
"Electrical & Computer Engineering" earlier in this 
section.) 

Educational Objectives 

The educational objectives of the program, based 
on the ABET Engineering Criteria and the program 



mission, are to produce graduates who: 

• Can pursue professional practice in initial electrical 
engineering positions or continue into graduate 
study either in electrical engineering or related 
fields. 

• Can adopt the analytical skills and the broad foun- 
dation in general education and liberal arts to allow 
for lifelong learning, providing the basis for leader- 
ship in their chosen field of endeavor. 

• Can communicate ideas effectively and participate 
in multidisciplinary teams to solve technical prob- 
lems and benefit humankind. 

• Are responsible and aware of the broad issues relat- 
ing to professional ethics, safety, and the environ- 
ment. 

Required Courses

grams sponsor a student section of the Institute of 
Electrical and Electronics Engineers. This organization 
supports visiting lecturers, educational workshops, 
field trips to surrounding industrial sites, and social 
events. 

Eta Kappa Nu, the national honor society for elec- 
trical and computer engineers, is represented by the 
Zeta Rho Chapter at the University of New Haven. 
This society exists to honor superior students and to 
encourage high scholastic achievement. 

Seamless Five-Year BS/MS in 
Electrical and Computer Engineering 

The combined BS/MS path affords the opportu- 
nity to qualified recipients of Bachelor of Science in 
Electrical Engineering (BSEE) and Bachelor of Science 
in Computer Engineering (BSCEN) degrees to con- 
tinue on to the Master's Degree in Electrical 
Engineering (MSEE) program and complete both 
degree programs in five years. Qualified students with 
UNH BSEE and BSCEN degrees will make a smooth 
transition into the MSEE degree program with no 



Engineering 133 



application fee and minimal paperwork. Once on this 
path, students will be allowed to register for at least 
two graduate courses or two cross-listed courses in 
their senior year. While these courses will fulfill the 
undergraduate degree requirements, they will also be 
used to waive certain requirements (up to six credits) 
of the MSEE degree. 

BS, Information Technology 

Program Coordinator: David W. Eggert, PhD 

The goals of the bachelor's degree program in 
Information Technology (IT) are to inform, challenge,

student should: 

• have acquired a solid body of knowledge and 
understanding of current technical concepts and 
practices in the core information technologies, 

• be able to design effective and usable IT-based solu- 
tions and integrate them into a user's environment, 
both individually and as part of a team, 

• be able to assist in the creation of an effective proj- 
ect plan, 

• be able to communicate effectively and efficiently 
with clients, users, and peers, both orally and in 
writing, 

• demonstrate independent critical thinking and 
problem-solving skills, 

• have acquired a solid body of knowledge and 
understanding of computer hardware and software, 

• be sensitive to human/computer interface design 
issues, 

• be aware of the legal and ethical issues that con- 
front the field of computing, 

• know the rights and obligations of the practicing 
computing professional, 

• be prepared for lifelong learning in the field. 

The program consists of a common core that 
exposes students to a wide range of computing and 
technology topics, including the study of databases, 
hardware, networks, programming, and himian/com- 
puter interaction. Advanced courses are selected from 



one of two tracks: Web and Database Development or 
Network Administration and Security. A student also 
must complete a specialization in another discipline. 
Suggested specializations include criminal justice, 
management, marketing, international business, art, 
and multimedia. 

Areas of application include webpage design and 
development, database administration and mainte- 
nance, and network development and administration. 
Typical initial job titles might be web developer, net- 
work technician, applications developer, and network 
security technician. With several years of experience, 
job titles might be website administrator, network 
administrator, database administrator, and security 
manager. 

A total of 122 credit hours, including the university 
core curriculum, is required for the BS in Information 
Technology. Students must complete one of two 
tracks: Web and Database Development or Network

The department of Mechanical, Civil, and 
Environmental Engineering comprises faculty, staff, 
and facilities that support two undergraduate (BS 
Civil Engineering and BS Mechanical Engineering) 
and two graduate (MS Environmental Engineering 
and MS Mechanical Engineering) programs. 

BS, Civil Engineering 

Program Coordinator: Gregory P. Broderick, PhD 

The bachelor's degree program in Civil Engineering 
is nationally accredited by the Engineering 
Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board 
for Engineering and Technology (EAC/ABET). 

Civil engineering is about community service; 
development and improvement; the planning, design, 
construction, and operation of facilities essential to 
modern life. Civil engineers are problem solvers tak- 
ing on the challenges of environmental pollution, traf- 
fic congestion, infrastructure rehabilitation, drinking 
water and energy needs, urban redevelopment, and 
community planning. They are at the forefront of 
technology', leading users of some of the most sophis- 
ticated high-tech products available (e.g., GPS and 
GIS systems; fiber-optic sensors; CAD systems; highly 
sophisticated, task-specific computer software; etc.). 
Innovation is paramount in the solution to most civil 
engineering projects. 

Program Mission and Educational Objectives 

The mission of the Civil Engineering program is to 
provide a state-of-the-art/state-of-the-practice pro- 
gram designed to achieve four major educational goals: 

• educate a new generation of civil engineers to meet 
the challenges, demands, and expectations of society, 

• cultivate, enrich, and promote scholarship, respon- 
sibility, and service among our graduates, 

• disseminate new knowledge, 

• nurture interdisciplinary education for solving the 
problems facing an ever-changing society. 



In order to achieve its mission, the educational 
objectives of the Civil Engineering program are to: 

• provide educational experiences that prepare our 
students for professional practice of modern civil 
engineering in a global, societal, and environmen- 
tal context, 

• promote scholarship and problem-solving skills, 

• instill an understanding of the technical, economic, 
political, ethical, and humanistic dimensions of 
civil engineering projects, 

• prepare students to interact and communicate 
effectively in multidisciplinary fields, 

• instill the desire and provide the educational foun- 
dation for lifelong learning, 

• encourage service to the civil engineering profes- 
sion and to society through professional registra- 
tion and community involvement. 

To help achieve the educational goals and objec- 
tives presented above, the faculty of the Civil 
Engineering program, in combination with the other 
faculties of the Tagliatela School of Engineering, have 
developed a new and innovative curriculum: the 
Multidisciplinary Engineering Foundation Spiral. It is 
an effort to provide the student, during the first two 
years of study, with a multidisciplinary engineering 
perspective. (See in-depth discussion under 
"Choosing A Major" in the Tagliatela School of 
Engineering main section.) 

The foundation engineering courses (EAS prefix) 
taken during the first two years of study serve both as 
the basis for depth in civil engineering study and as 
part of a broad multidisciplinary background. Each 
foundation course also stresses the development of sev- 
eral essential skills, such as problem solving, oral and 
written communication, the design process, team- 
work, project management, computer analysis meth- 
ods, laboratory investigation, data analysis, and model 
development. In the junior and senior years, the stu- 
dent is exposed to required and elective civil engineer- 
ing coursework embedded with experiences in 
analysis, design, and professional issues, providing 
insight into five civil engineering subdisciplines: 
structural, geotechnical, hydraulics-water resources, 
transportation, and environmental engineering. The 



136 



critical skills introduced during the first two years are 
further enhanced through a variety of pedagogical 
methods, including laboratory reports, team projects, 
design assignments, oral presentations, and participa- 
tion in American Society of Civil Engineers Student 
Chapter activities, as well as field trips to local civil 
engineering projects. Upper-level technical electives 
provide comprehensive exposure to current and 
emerging technologies in the various civil engineering 
subdisciplines. Aspects of professional and ethical civil 
engineering practice and service to the profession and 
society are covered to a finite degree in all upper-level 
courses and extensively in a required course, 
"Professional and Ethical Practice of Engineering." 
Coursework culminates with a capstone design course 
that provides extensive exposure to "real-world" design 
problems faced within contemporary civil engineering 
professional practice. Humanities and social science 
courses are included at all levels of the curriculum. 

The Civil Engineering program is enriched by a 
diverse student body which includes students of a wide 
range of ages, professional and nonprofessional experi- 
ences, and nationalities. Graduates of the program are 
encouraged to continue their education throughout 
their professional careers and to become registered 
professional engineers. 

A bachelor's degree from an ABET- accredited insti- 
tution is required to become a PE, a registered profes- 
sional engineer. Accreditation is a testament to the 
quality of the Civil Engineering program. 

Internship Requirement 

The internship program is intended to enrich the 
academic experience of our undergraduate students, 
providing exposure to and participation in a working 
engineering environment. Each internship must 
involve a partnership consisting of students, engineer- 
ing faculty, and employers/organizations to provide 
each student intern with an optimal experience. A 
minimum of 300 hours performing relevant engineer- 
ing duties is required prior to graduation. Students 
must complete 60 credit hours toward the bachelor's 
degree in Civil Engineering before an internship is 
attempted. 

The internship carries no credit for the degree; 



however, the requirement may be satisfied utilizing a 
co-op position, summer employment, and part-time 
or full-time positions that are approved by the stu- 
dent's employer and by the department/internship 
coordinator as relevant to the goals of the internship 
experience. A waiver (or substitution) of the intern- 
ship requirement may be granted for students who are 
employed in the field, subject to a formal review by the 
department/internship coordinator. The student's 
request for such a waiver must be initiated one year 
prior to the anticipated graduation date. 

Students must complete a total of 132 credit hours 
for the bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering, includ- 
ing the engineering requirements for the freshman 
year listed earlier in this section, the university core 
requirements, and the internship requirement. 
Students are also required to earn a cumulative quality 
point ratio of no less than 2.0 in all civil engineering 
courses and technical electives.

BS, Mechanical Engineering 

Program Coordinator: John Sarris, PhD 

Mechanical engineering represents a wide diversity 
of pursuits including the analysis, design, and testing 
of machines, products, and systems essential to every- 
day life - everything from doorknobs, tennis rackets, 
and fishing reels to power plants, skyscrapers, and 
automobiles. Mechanical engineers work in a variety 



138 



of fields such as aerospace, utilities, materials process- 
ing, transportation, manufacturing, electronics, and 
telecommunications. 

Program Mission and Educational Objectives 

The mission of the Mechanical Engineering pro- 
gram is to graduate professionally competent and 
responsible students who can meet industry's current 
and future needs in the general area of mechanical 
engineering. 

In order to achieve its mission, the Mechanical 
Engineering program must ensure that its graduates: 

• apply knowledge in mathematics (through multi- 
variate calculus and differential equations, with 
familiarity with statistics and linear algebra), 

• apply knowledge in science (chemistry and calcu- 
lus-based physics, with depth in physics), 

• apply knowledge in engineering, including the for- 
mulation and solution of engineering problems, 

• use techniques, skills, and tools (contemporary 
analytic, computational, and experimental) neces- 
sary for modern engineering practice, 

• design, conduct, and analyze results of experi- 
ments, 

• actively participate in teams, including multidisci- 
plinary teams, 

• communicate effectively, 

• accomplish design and realization of thermo/fluid 
and mechanical systems, components, and 
processes, 

• understand the professional and ethical ramifica- 
tions of engineering solutions within the context of 
modern society, and 

• cultivate a lifelong capacity for learning. 

Recognizing current knowledge-base demands on 
graduating engineers and responding to input from the 
program's stakeholders, the Mechanical Engineering 
department has embraced the concept of a multidisci- 
plinary foundation to discipline-specific education (for 
details, see the description under the Tagliatela School 
of Engineering). Thus, the Bachelor of Science in 
Mechanical Engineering (BSME) curriculum includes, 
mostly in the first two years, a sequence of nine newly 
created (EAS prefix) foundation courses. 



Mechanical engineering classes are kept small 
(rarely more than twenty students) and are taught 
almost exclusively by full-time faculty. Experienced 
practitioners from industry may also contribute their 
expertise in selected courses. Faculty and students 
work with industry in research and design projects. 

With help from their academic advisor, students 
can choose from several available concentrations. 
Restricted and technical elective courses may be 
selected which offer the opportunity for further learn- 
ing in areas such as fluids, energy, design, heat transfer, 
numerical analysis and computers, aerospace sciences, 
and control systems. 

Academic Performance 

Mechanical engineering majors who complete their 
first twelve credits of ME-prefixed engineering courses 
with a cumulative grade point average for these courses 
of less than 2.0 will have their academic records 
reviewed by the entire ME faculty on a regular basis. 
An ME-prefixed course may not be taken more than 
twice unless permission is granted by the program 
coordinator. 

An undergraduate student already enrolled at the 
University of New Haven who wishes to transfer to 
Mechanical Engineering will normally be expected to 
satisfy the standards of the program for admission by 
transfer. 

The coordinator of the Mechanical Engineering 
program reserves the right not to award transfer credit 
for technical courses taken at any institution more 
than ten years prior to a student's matriculation in the 
Bachelor of Science degree program in Mechanical 
Engineering at the University of New Haven, if it is 
determined that knowledge acquired in those courses 
is either inadequate or obsolete. 

Exceptional students having an overall average of 
3.50 or better may join the Delta Zeta Chapter of the 
Pi Tau Sigma honor society, which provides the oppor- 
tunity for closer relations with faculty and other promi- 
nent individuals in the field for the purpose of further 
professional development, involvement in faculty 
research, and varied social and intellectual activities. 



Engineering 139 



Practicum 

It is recognized in the Mechanical Engineering pro- 
gram that experiential work as an undergraduate stu- 
dent is a valuable tool in launching a successful 
professional career. It is desirable, then, for mechani- 
cal engineering majors to spend some time prior to 
graduation performing engineering-related duties at a 
manufacturing company, consulting firm, technical 
organization, government agency, or some other 
appropriate setting. 

Interns are required to complete a minimum of 300 
hours of practical experience in an area or technical 
project closely related to mechanical engineering. The 
requirement may be satisfied through appropriate co- 
op work experience, part- or full-time employment, a 
summer job, or an apprenticeship or volunteer work at 
any time during a student's undergraduate studies. 
Registration, proof of compliance, or a request for 
waiver must be submitted to the department only after 
completion of 75 credit hours toward the BSME 
degree. The practicum is graded on a Satisfactory/ 
Unsatisfactory basis and carries no academic credit. 

The BSME program has been nationally accredited 
by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of the 
Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology 
(EAC/ABET) for 35 years. 

Required Courses 

Students earning the Bachelor of Science in 
Mechanical Engineering are required to complete 1 26 
credit hours, including the university core curriculum. 

Freshman Year 

In addition to the common first-year courses listed 
under the Tagliatela School of Engineering, mechani- 
cal engineering students take the Mechanical 
Engineering Skills Workshop. The one-hour-per- 
week workshop familiarizes students with basic prac- 
tices in a laboratory environment, including safety 
considerations, design planning, layout, fabrication, 
and the use of basic measuring equipment and devices 
to test and verify a design. The workshop is offered in 
the spring semester and is graded on a 
Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory basis. The workshop car- 
ries no academic credit.

Multidisciplinary 
Engineering Systems 
Division 

Chairman: Michael A. Collura, PhD 

Faculty in the Multidisciplinary Engineering 
Systems Division (MESD) hold a primary appoint- 
ment to one of the disciplinary departments of the 
Tagliatela School of Engineering and are MESD 
Instructors, Fellows, or Scholars, depending on their 
level of participation in the activities of the division. 

Mission 

The mission of the division is to provide a multidis- 
ciplinary engineering foundation for a variety of pro-

First Year Engineering Program 

Program Coordinator: Jean Nocito-Gobel, PhD 

Faculty: Representatives from undergraduate pro- 
grams in the school 

The First Year Engineering Program prepares stu- 
dents for upper-level study in their chosen discipline 
through a combination of specialized advising, the 
first-year engineering curriculum, extracurricular 
activities, and workshops. Students learn about the 
contributions and attributes of various engineering 
and applied science disciplines to help them finalize 
their choice of a major area of study. Workshops and 
tutoring sessions help students meet the challenges of 
a rigorous academic program in engineering or applied 
science. Plant trips and guest speakers provide an 
exciting bridge to the industrial world beyond the 
classroom walls. 

The Multidisciplinary Engineering 
Foundation Spiral Curriculum 

The Multidisciplinary Engineering Foundation 
Spiral Curriculum is a four-semester sequence of 
engineering courses (EAS prefix) matched closely with 
the development of students' mathematical sophistica- 
tion and analytical capabilities and integrated with 
coursework in the sciences. Students develop a con- 
ceptual understanding of engineering basics in a series 
of courses that stress practical applications of these 
principles. Topics in these courses include electrical 
circuits, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, material bal- 
ances, properties of materials, structural mechanics, 
and thermodynamics. Unlike the more traditional 
approach, each of the foundation courses includes a 
mix of these topics presented in a variety of discipli- 
nary contexts. A solid background is developed by 
touching key concepts at several points along the spi- 
, ral in different courses, adding depth and sophistica- 
I tion at each pass. Each foundation course also stresses 
the development of several essential skills, such as 
problem solving, oral and written communication. 



organizational skills, the design process, teamwork, 
project management, computer analysis methods, lab- 
oratory investigation, data analysis, and model devel- 
opment. Students will build substantial depth in some 
of the foundation areas in subsequent courses, while 
other topics may not be further developed, depending 
on their chosen discipline. Thus the foundation 
courses serve both as the basis for depth in disciplinary 
study and as part of a broad multidisciplinary back- 
ground.

BS, General Engineering 

Program Coordinator: Michael A. Collura, PhD 

The Bachelor of Science in General Engineering 
(GE) is a degree program designed for those interested 
in a career involving engineering knowledge but with 
more flexibility than is possible in a specific engineer- 
ing discipline. It provides an opportunity for a student 
to combine engineering with any other undergraduate 



142 



discipline within the university, such as studies in: 

• business areas 

• communication 

• legal studies 

• science or math 

• teaching and education 

It also provides the opportunity for including ele- 
ments of two different engineering disciplines in one 
degree program. 

Career opportunities depend on the areas of study 
selected and might include: 

• engineering and technical services 

• technical management and sales 

• engineering-related business activities 

• music 

• science-related activities 

• computer-related activities 

• technical writing 

• medical services 

• education 

The Degree Program 

The bachelor's degree program in General 
Engineering requires completion of 121 credit hours. 
Students can use the various electives (including engi- 
neering electives) to focus on an area of interest within 
engineering or to combine engineering with other 
areas. As part of the program, students must select a 
minor from any recognized program at UNH. 

Undecided Option 

Students who wish to earn an engineering degree in 
a designated discipline (chemical, civil, computer, 
electrical, mechanical) but who are undecided about 
their choice should start with the General Engineering 
program and change majors when they have decided 
on an area of specialization. For most choices, making 
a decision by the end of the first year of study will 
result in a smooth transition.

Additional Requirements 

Students must select a minor area of study from any 
department at UNH. Electives designated as "Elective 
for Minor" may be used to satisfy the minor require- 
ments. In some cases, courses required for the minor 
include courses that are specifically listed as required in 
General Engineering. For example, the calculus 
sequence counts toward a minor in math, so only three 
of the electives are needed to complete the math 
minor. In such a case, remaining "Elective for Minor" 
choices may be used as free electives. 

In order to assure depth of study, at least five of the 
elective courses in the program should be at or above 
the 300 level and should have prerequisites. 

Teaching Certification 

There is a growing need for primary and secondary 
teachers in math and science. In addition, many high 
schools have begun offering engineering courses for 
their students, using curricula such as the Project Lead 
The Way program. Students completing the General 
Engineering program gain a broad understanding of 
math and science and of the application of these sub- 
jects in engineering work. This background, along 
with generous elective choices, provides an excellent 
opportunity to prepare for the teaching profession. 

Within the state of Connecticut, certification to 
teach at the primary or secondary level requires sub- 
stantial undergraduate coursework in the content area 
' for which certification is sought. The General 
Engineering program requires significant study of 
math and science, as well as the application of math 



and science in the EAS courses. By selecting electives 
wisely, in consultation with an Education department 
advisor, a student can readily earn the necessary cred- 
its to satisfy the content requirements for math and a 
science area. Possible certification areas include math, 
chemistry, physics, and general science. 

Graduates of the General Engineering program 
may apply for entry to the UNH Master of Science in 
Education (MSED) program, which will allow them 
to complete the Master's in Education and earn a 
teaching certification in one year after graduation. 
Eligible students may apply for accelerated entry into 
the MSED program and take three education courses 
as part of their undergraduate program. This acceler- 
ated program is designed to facilitate a smooth transi- 
tion into the graduate program and to introduce the 
student to the teaching profession during the junior 
and senior years. Students interested in this option 
will be assigned a co-advisor from the Education 
department to assure compliance with the rigorous 
policies for certification. 

Quality Engineering Option 

The Quality Engineering option prepares students 
for jobs in the areas of quality and process improve- 
ment popularly applied in the business, service, gov- 
ernment, and retail industries. Students will learn 
about concepts, theories, tools, and techniques, 
including process mapping, sampling techniques, sta- 
tistical process control (SPC), experimental design 
applicable when implementing lean and six sigma 
projects, quality audit programs, SPC monitoring sys- 
tems, and quality assurance. This option can be com- 
bined with other IE courses to form an Industrial 
Engineering minor or may be included as a separate 
cluster. 

IE 346 Probability Theory 

IE 347 Statistical Analysis 

(note: this would replace EAS 345) 
IE 304 Production Control 

IE 436 Qualit)' Control 

Bioengineering and Premed Options 

An interest in bioengineering can be readily accom- 
modated by the General Engineering degree in several 
ways. Students may combine the minor in Biology 



144 



with electives in other areas, or they can minor in one 
of the engineering discipUnes and select several biology 
electives. For example, to prepare for a career in the 
biomedical field, a minor in Electrical, Mechanical, or 
Chemical Engineering can be combined with General 
and Human Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, and 
Cell Biology. Faculty in the Engineering and Biology 
departments would guide the student into specific 
courses based on career interests. 

The rigor of an engineering program serves as an 
excellent preparation for medical school. Students 
choosing to pursue such a path should include courses 
in organic chemistry as well as biology. These can be 
fit into the structure of the General Engineering pro- 
gram using the minor and TSoE electives. 

Management Option 

The minor in Management includes coursework in 
accounting, leadership, economics, business law, man- 
agement, and marketing. This broad background in 
business is an excellent choice for students who wish to 
pursue a career on the business side of a technical field. 

BS, Industrial Engineering 

Program Coordinator: M. Ali Montazer, PhD 

The BS in Industrial Engineering degree program is 
accredited by the Engineering Accreditation 
Commission of the Accreditation Board for 
Engineering and Technology (EAC/ABET). 

The Bachelor of Science degree program in 
Industrial Engineering (BSIE) is being phased out. 
Admission to the program is closed to new students, 
and the remaining students are expected to graduate 
by May 2008. The industrial engineering courses are 
included in other degree programs and will continue to 
be offered. The graduate programs in Industrial 
Engineering are unaffected. A new undergraduate 
program in System Engineering is under development. 

Mission and Educational Objectives 

Tracing its lineage to the creation of the university 
in 1920, when one of the two original program offer- 
ings was called "Industrial Arts," the Industrial 
Engineering program defines its mission as being suc- 
cessful as a premier provider of undergraduate and 



graduate degrees in industrial engineering. This mis- 
sion includes recruiting a diverse student body; pro- 
viding state-of-the-art education; and interacting with 
employers to ensure that graduates are ready, willing, 
and able to contribute to their chosen professions in 
service organizations, manufacturing, the military, 
government, transportation, commerce, health care, 
and numerous other fields. 

The program accomplishes its mission by preparing 
industrial engineers, people who engineer processes 
and systems that improve quality and productivity in 
any workplace setting. The program's objectives are to 
produce graduates who: 

• are career-ready and capable of pursuing graduate 
studies, 

• can communicate their ideas effectively, 

• can successfully interact with team members and 
others, and 

• are professionally and ethically responsible. 

The program combines strong theoretical founda- 
tions in science, mathematics, probability and statis- 
tics, human factors/ergonomics, humanities, and 
social sciences with industrial engineering and com- 
puter applications in order to improve effectiveness in 
virtually all industries and economic sectors, including 
manufacturing, transportation, service, and govern- 
ment. Graduates will be prepared to address issues of 
operational design, process and product quality, meth- 
ods improvement, and facilities design. 

Industrial engineering is one of the most flexible 
and diverse of all engineering disciplines, providing a 
broad view of the complex interrelated activities nec- 
essary to produce a product or service efficiently in a 
competitive market. Through selection of elective 
courses, an industrial engineering student can special- 
ize in a broad range of areas applicable to manufactur- 
ing and service industries, including quality control, 
ergonomics, work design, operations research, produc- 
tion control, facilities planning, logistics, and manu- 
facturing. 

Industrial engineering is concerned with the 
design, evaluation, and improvement of 
human/machine systems, processes, and methods, 
considering such factors as economics, safety, the envi- 



Engineering 145 



ronment, and etiiics. The skills imparted and insights 
developed in the graduates are intended to be useful 
for professional practice in a wide spectrum of manu- 
facturing industries - in transportation; in insurance 
and service industries; and in government, retail trade, 
and commerce. Expertise in industrial engineering is 
presently highly sought, as the joint concern for pro- 
ductivity and quality improvement is manifested 
throughout the national and global economy. 
Industrial engineers are among the most upwardly 
mobile of those in the engineering profession by virtue 
of their training and expertise. Many industrial engi- 
neers have attained top management positions in a 
variety of industries. 

The program provides a broad engineering back- 
ground during the first two years. In the last two 
years, students are required to take an ensemble of 
courses which are designed to shape their expertise in 
industrial engineering. These include courses in man- 
ufacturing, robotics, quality control, production, facil- 
ities planning, operations research, ergonomics, and 
simulation modeling. 

Extensive laboratory facilities support our 
Industrial Engineering academic program. These 
include laboratories in human factors/ergonomics, 
manufacturing engineering, work design, facilities 
planning, computer-aided design and computer-aided 
manufacturing (CAD/CAM), and robotics. 

Required Courses 

Students earning the Bachelor of Science in 
Industrial Engineering (BSIE) must complete 127 
credit hours, including the university core curriculum. 
The program also includes three credit hours of 
internship or a technical elective chosen in consulta- 
tion with the student's advisor for relevancy and con- 
tent. Internship refers to project work related to 
industrial engineering with local industries. Under the 
umbrella of BSIE, students have the option of choos- 
ing a concentration in manufacturing systems, quality 
systems, computer systems, or information systems. 
The latter two concentrations consist of courses from 
the Electrical and Computer Engineering and 
Computer Science programs. The BSIE curriculum is 
as follows:

the efficient development and operational support of 
complex, costly systems. Its subdivisions include cus- 
tomer requirements planning, design-to-cost concepts, 
configuration control, life-cycle analysis, transporta- 
tion and distribution, reliability, and field support net- 
works. Modern logistics is the science which ensures 
that needs are met when they occur, at a reasonable 
resource expenditure. UNH offers the following 
undergraduate certificate as well as a graduate certifi- 
cate in logistics. 

The undergraduate certificate sequence consists of 
five three-credit courses followed by a one-credit cap- 
stone logistics seminar. This course sequence provides 
students with a working knowledge of logistics and 
covers topics included in the Certified Professional

The Criminal Justice Program at the University of 
New Haven provides students with a comprehensive 
and professional understanding of crime and the 
administration of justice. The goal of the program is 
to prepare students for professional careers in criminal 
justice, public service, and social service organizations, 
as well as for future study in graduate and professional 
fields. The program meets these goals through its 
highly qualified full-time faculty, who both teach and 
conduct research in the field. The full-time faculty 
members are supported by part-time faculty members 
drawn from the professional community who teach 
specialized courses in their areas of expertise. 

The criminal justice program of study follows the 
university's mission to provide engaged learning oppor- 
tunities by the utilization of internships, service learning, 



Henry Lee College of Public Safety 151 



and individual student research learning opportunities. 
Through this engaged learning model students develop 
an understanding of both theoretical and practical issues 
of crime and the administration of justice. 

There is a full range of career opportunities available 
in criminal justice at all levels of government and 
within the private sector. Because of its interdiscipli- 
nary approach, combined with the university's engaged 
learning commitment, the study of criminal justice fills 
the needs of students seeking careers in teaching, 
research, and law and of criminal justice professionals 
seeking academic and professional advancement. 

The department offers courses from the associate's 
to the master's level as well as certificates. Complete 
information about the master of science degree in crim- 
inal justice is available in the Graduate School catalog. 

Undergraduate criminal justice concentrations in 
law enforcement, corrections, crime analysis, inves- 
tigative services, juvenile and family justice, and victim 
services administration are available in the criminal 
justice program. A separate program is offered in 
forensic science. 

The Criminal Justice Club 

The American Criminal Justice Association (ACJA) 
is a national professional and preprofessional organiza- 
tion with goals that include improved technology, 
training, and service for the benefit of the criminal jus- 
tice system. UNH's local student chapter of ACJA is 

I the Psi Omega chapter. This club offers students a 
variety of activities including community service as 
well as the opportunity to meet and work with practi- 

I tioners in the field. Students also meet others with 
similar interests and are eligible to participate in 
regional and national programs and activities. 

Additional information may be obtained by con- 
tacting the faculty advisor for the chapter, Dr. James 
Adcock, in the Department of Criminal Justice.

The Institute of Law 
and Public Affairs 

Director: William M. Norton, JD, PhD 

The Institute of Law and Public Affairs has been 
established to provide undergraduates with specific 
training in the areas of the paralegal profession, pub- 
lic policy, and public affairs. Students with an 
undergraduate major in any of the schools of the 
university may attain paraprofessional status in para- 
legal studies or public affairs by completing a minor 
in the Institute. The term paraprofessional applies to 
those with special training in a professional field 
who do not yet possess the terminal degree normally 
required in the profession. In many instances, para- 
professional status is a step toward the accomplish- 
ment of the final degree. 

Minor in Public Affairs 

The public affairs minor in the Institute of Law 
and Public Affairs is directed toward providing train- 
ing for civil service positions at all levels of govern- 
ment. The goal of such training is to provide more 
effective public administrators and to introduce cre- 
ativity into the profession of public service. The 
public affairs minor will take a problem-solving 
approach to the discipline as students will be con- 
ducting basic, in-depth research on problems of gov- 
ernmental agencies. Students in this minor will be 
able to develop valuable insights into the nature of 
the public policy process from the vantage point of 
the bureaucracy. Courses are selected in consultation 
with a faculty advisor.

The department of professional studies offers sev- 
eral degree programs for students interested in specific 
employment-related areas: fire science (technology, 
administration, and fire/arson investigation), fire pro- 
tection engineering, and occupational safety and 
health administration. A number of certificates are

gal studies and minors in legal/public affairs. 

Fire Science 

Director: Robert E. Massicotte, Jr., MS 

The United States continues to be among those 
countries worldwide which suffer the highest degree of 
destruction to life and property from fire. The 
arson/fraud fire problem continues to contribute to 
these statistics at an alarming rate. 

Concern over this unnecessary loss of life and prop- 
erty has triggered a rapidly growing need for profes- 
sionals in fire science. The municipal fire service is 
only one part of this demand for individuals with spe- 
cialized education in this multidisciplined field. Career 
opportunities in the public sector include those for 
municipal firefighters, fire inspectors, fire investiga- 
tors, fire technicians, and fire protection engineers. 
Private sector careers include those of industrial fire- 
fighters, fire protection specialists, fire protection engi- 
neers, fire investigators, and loss control consultants. 
Government, industry, fire equipment manufacturers 
and vendors, and the insurance industry are all poten- 
tial employers. 

The University of New Haven offers five under- 
graduate degrees and four certificate programs designed 
for those entering the exciting field of fire science. A 
combination of classroom lectures, laboratory sessions, 
case studies, and field trips is utilized to give the stu- 
dent the broadest possible exposure in this area of 
study. Internships are used to allow the student to 
obtain real-life work experience in this specialized field. 

The university also offers graduate certificate pro- 
grams and a masters degree in fire science for those 
completing their bachelor's degrees.

Occupational Safety 
and Health 

Director: Howard J. Cohen, PhD 

In recent years, the global community has become 
painfully aware of the importance of safety procedures 
and precautions in our everyday survival: the acciden- 
tal release of lethal gases in India and the United 
States, the space shuttle disasters, the cyanide deaths 
from altered Tylenol capsules, to mention only a few 
cases. Clearly, safety decision-making has been 
brought to the forefront of corporation management. 
No employer today can afford to relegate safety to a 
minor role in the organizational hierarchy. 

This great interest in safety issues has generated a 
significant demand for professional practitioners in 
the field. Industry, retailing, commerce, communica- 
tions, construction, and labor unions, as well as local, 
state, and federal governments, need competent safety 
specialists. 

The demands placed upon the safety professional 
require a broad background in chemistry, physics, 
engineering, psychology, and biology as well as spe- 
cific knowledge in the safety sciences. Our under- 
graduate programs draw upon the resources of the 



entire university to educate students in each of these 
disciplines. In addition to required courses, students 
choose from among a diversified offering of restricted 
and free electives with a balance of courses designed 
to meet the needs and interests of individual stu- 
dents. Upon graduation, our students have received 
the comprehensive education needed to become suc- 
cessful professionals in occupational safety and 
health. 

In addition to the four-year bachelor of science 
programs in occupational safety and health adminis- 
tration and technology, the university also offers two- 
year associate's degree programs and an occupational 
safety and health certificate. At the graduate level, 
several programs are offered which include a master 
of science in occupational safety and health manage- 
ment, a master of science in industrial hygiene, and 
two graduate certificates. 

The Co-op Program 

The department participates in the cooperative 
education program (Co-op), which enables students to 
combine practical, paid work experience in their career 
field with college education. For further details see 
"The Co-op Program," which appears earlier in this 
catalog, or contact the co-op coordinator for the 
Henry Lee College of Public Safety. 

BS, Occupational Safety and Health 
Administration 

The degrees in occupational safety and health 
administration include technical courses in safety and 
health along with broad areas including engineering, 
management, and the basic sciences to give students a 
comprehensive background necessary to direct safety 
functions. 

In addition to the requirements for the AS degree 
as shown below, bachelor's candidates must complete 
the following courses for a combined total of 123 
credit hours:
